“This was the first play I have ever read and I literally could not put it down! THE DONUT SHOP was such an easy read, time flew by! Now I can’t stop reading Carl’s plays, after THE DONUT SHOP, I read 4 more and then went back and re-read all of them again…each time learning more and growing more…astonishing!” – Jacqueline Peterson, President of S.O.A.R: committed to the Support of Seminole Fire Victims.

“If I had read THE DONUT SHOP when I was young, it would have been a godsend. I struggled with bulimia in high school and during my first two years of college. Having a resource that discussed eating disorders in an entertaining format such as this play brings issues to the forefront. It would have helped me to learn to love myself. The play is a creative way to address the awkward emotionality of those who suffer with eating disorders.– Blythe Metz-Mandmets: Chef & Food Nutritionalist

THE DONUT SHOP launch narratives that lead to understanding and healing. The play stirs a thoughtful conversation: the play wrestles a common demon from different viewpoints and helps people address their anxieties using characters challenged with eating disorders in a safe space.” 
– Amy La Boube, Store Team Leader at WHOLE FOODS: MALIBU

“I LOVED BOTH!!! Super-fun and super-easy to read, an absolute pleasure. I wish both THE DONUT SHOP & FLY EAGLES FLY were required reading in all high schools and colleges. I am excited to support something so important to the world and the industry. So many in need will benefit from the funding that these plays will create, I am proud to support this goodness
