Small Little Safe World is the story of Dave, a middle-aged lonely man with no living family and only one friend. He works as a motel desk clerk and eats his meals in a diner. One day, Erin, a much younger woman, strikes up a conversation with him in the diner. They hit it off and enter a relationship, but Erin is looking for a very specific type of relationship, one that will walk the fragile line of reality and fantasy.

"Brought together by a great cast, a welcoming stage, and a masterful crew, Small Little Safe World will envelop you into a compelling story of exploration and the discovery of oneself. The cast was perfectly cast and has great chemistry on stage, regardless of the close proximity to the audience where amateurs would crack under the pressure. The crew clearly went out and did their research on the topic subject, which makes for an interesting and compelling show that will keep you encapsulated throughout its entirety."

"Very little in "Small Little Safe World" is actually small, or truly safe. This is a show that endeavors to tackle some big questions and 'taboo' topics, and while it doesn't always succeed in sticking the landing, the effort itself makes for a commendable and engaging 80 minutes. Julia Coulter, as Erin, has perhaps the most challenging and expansive character to bring to life, and her work is admirable. Especially at the most intense moments of the story, it's near impossible to look away from her. The energy, the raw, chaotic magnetism she brings to Erin, gives the show a dark and challenging backbone. Telling stories about kink and trauma isn't an easy thing to do, or a common thing to see, but this show endeavors to open that door to what you might not understand just a bit wider. For that alone, Small Little Safe World is worth attending."

"The production is small and safe – this has nothing to do with budget, as productions with no budget can be more impactful than million-dollar extravaganzas. The smallness and safety is in the writing and performances, neither of which are ready for a larger, more mature world."

"Small Little Safe World challenges you to rethink your perspective on taboo kinks. The writing takes necessary risks in order to get the audience out of their comfort zones and into the skins of the characters who are just like everyday people in real life."

"Small little safe world is a compelling story about a very unconventional relationship. It dives into a topic that leaves people uncomfortable, but wanting to learn more. The actors are fun to watch, especially Julia Coulter who delivers the manic and explosive personality of the character Erin. It's worth watching in order to get insight into a new type of relationship. It's full of fun moments, and demands a reaction from its audience. Lastly, this play opens up the door for a lot of conversations and had many of us seeking to understand age play and its role in people's lives."

"Small Little Safe World is provocative. The play write, Mike Eichler, took the audience on a journey of emotional twists and turns. The direction most certainly challenged the actors as well the audience. Julia Coulter, as Erin, pulled everyone along through stunning personality swings. Truly memorable."
