"...an outstanding new play."

"This is clearly one of the most interesting, captivating and thought-provoking new scripts to come our way in a long time and it marks Laborde as a writer who deserves both attention and respect... Leo is a small that jewel that hums with vibrant writing and powerfully felt emotions."
