"Mad Spoiler Alert: Not all stories have happy endings. Some of them do. If We Run is one of those stories that could end either way. The cool part about this play is that it isn’t obvious which way it’s going to end, and even though part of you does want it to have a fairytale ending another part of you secretly hopes it doesn’t. Because the latter is so much more heartbreakingly real and truthful. Matt’s writing doesn’t let the characters get away with having their heart’s desire because at the end of the day, they know that what their heart wants isn’t what will actually lead to happiness. It’s real life on-stage and it’ll probably feel eerily familiar to a relationship you’ve had yourself."

"This show was terrific, exceeded my already high expectations. It touched on a number of subjects most people can relate to. Mr. Beza and Ms. Oliver both gave fine, committed performances. Highly recommended."

"All-in-all, it’s a very well-executed showcase, for the play and performers, and its pursuit of truth and excellence is refreshingly cinematic in this cheap and cheerful theatrical extravaganza that is the Hollywood Fringe Festival. - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED"

"This new play from Matt Morillo has a lot of funny, light moments that allow you to follow Rachel and Brian into the night and eventually learn about their past and who they are individually. Both Katie Oliver and Dingani Beza make their Fringe Debut and each deliver solid performances. They both KNOW who their characters are in the past, in the present and in the future – as much as anyone in real life can predict their future selves. Emily Lappi’s directing is smooth and works in the best interest of the actors, as if she has known these two characters for the ten or so years that they were together. Each person involved in this show has put in the work and it shows."

"If We Run is an incredible, emotional roller coaster. It'll make you think, laugh, cry, and love in under an hour. It has its feel good moments as well as its heartbreaking ones. Dingani and Katie blew the audience away with their performances. It felt like watching a real couple as a fly on the wall and that is entirely due to their great skill as actors and the incredible writing. Make sure you see this."
