The highlight of the play surely is the performance of Ethan Itzkow as 17-year-old Luke.  Sweet, boyish and full of the curiosity and passion of youth, this is one young actor to keep an eye on

There may be an inclination to find humor in Jess's desperate effort to scrape enough roaches together to roll a joint, but there is an overriding impulse to empathize with her life's dilemma. It's this balance of emotion combined with raw realism that makes CASHED such a fine and compelling film

Ethan Itzkow's text is a good mix of comedy and pathos...These stories are both funny and utterly grotesque; there’s no filter from Itzkow of the gory details, and it is this blunt approach which ultimately made me care about the two protagonists of the piece
