What people are saying about Talking Points:

"This is the hands down winner, and a delightful opener..." - Florida Theater On Stage

"The comedy that flows from that stylized setup is clever, but at the end, 'Talking Points' digs deeper to reinforce a family’s caring support for a young man grieving a lost love." - Miami Herald

"A tender, funny tale..." - Miami Art Zine
“Absolutely adorable. Hayet has won my heart over with this precious little play. There is so much love and sweetness in this play and if you read it (or see it) and don't immediately go, "awww," then I am sorry to inform you that you are broken. The whole play is sweet and funny and quirky, but what's really special about it is Grandma's speech at the end--which is simply one of the loveliest speeches I've ever read in a play. Funny and economical, this is a delightful ten minute play that would be great for any festival. ” - Emily Hageman, Playwright
