" ... a light, pleasant show in which everybody dies in a hideous car crash. Playwright Jeremy Dobrish crafts a modern fairy tale in this super-natural comic treat

In separate vignettes, each of the three central characters takes us back in time through the events leading up to the aforementioned catastrophe, which is catalyzed by a mysterious magical dog who grants each person what he or she most desires

In the case of seventy-year-old Abe that wish is youth; in that of Cathy, it is to be seen as beautiful in the eyes of her husband; and in that of Jonathan, it is not to be seen at all-to become invisible. In a refreshing twist on a hoary formula, everybody is ecstatic and even fulfilled upon having his or her heart's longing instantly come true ... (in) ... Dobrish's highly original script" ~ Trav S D, Time Out New York

"In Jeremy Dobrish's upside-down mystery, a detective and a uniformed officer try to piece together a car accident in which the driver and two pedestrians, one of them naked, die

This procedural gimmick - the police remaining clueless to the end while the audience discovers what happened - was popular a century ago and is still fun" # D J R Bruckner, New York Times
