Please Respond to “Falling”

    • Please spread the word, that would help immensely also. Tell any advocates you know. We will do the same.


      • DisScoop is promoting the play: mainstream reviews went well. I’m already in the mod queue.

        (It seems that Mr. Jent either was not asked for his opinion on the play, or was not briefed on it and therefore doesn’t have one. So far as I can tell he hasn’t seen the play, either in-person or via webcast.)
