Under the One-Time Sky:
A One Act Play
(Midtown International Theatre Festival at the Davenport Theatre)

Under swaying trees, two childhood friends careen into a past that has long been preserved in a tiny backyard. One has traveled the world. One has never left town. Together, they will learn something today: How long can a moment stay with you? It may be as long as you hide from it.

"This slice of life play presents a sensitive subject with great finesse. Its story is moving, its characters are believable and vibrant, and its lessons are poignant." - Viktor Jacob, Certified Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Counselor/Advocate
"Susan Jennifer Polese asks us to consider what responsibility memory plays in the border between childhood innocence and adulthood. Is saving a living being arbitrary? Perhaps by revisiting the trauma together we finally cast light? " - Catherine Filloux, Social Justice Activist and Playwright
