What I liked

An overall imaginative piece, lighting, blocking, and acting. Ophelia, played by Brackenridge, brings to the stage a subtle yet immensely captivating physical presence. Ophelia’s breakthrough is not to be missed. Daisy (Gilmore) was mature, cool, and extremely well-cast. Lolita (Artenian) was both childlike and harrowed. I will be seeing it again on the 19th!

What I didn't like

Love the heart shaped sunglasses, but lose them in the very beginning. We want to see your eyes when we first meet you, Lolita!

My overall impression

A fantastically devised play and an achievement of local theater. This was my first time at the Fringe and I’m impressed. Three women wrote, designed, and acted in this piece about finding and claiming voice through solidarity. Watching these classic female characters break out of their male narration and meet ignites new possibilities for themselves and the audience. Excellently imagined and executed!
