My overall impression

From the moment this show started I felt something crawling inside of me, my breath got heavy, my heart was pounding and I knew I was in for an evening of theater that would move me. The tension riding underneath this play is palpable and director Caitlin Hart knows just how to keep it going. The stillness and explosions are skillfully crafted but as an audience we can’t see the seams, it just feels like a tattered mess in the best way possible, life is a tattered mess and the best we can do is try to make sense of it. The four characters are trying to do just that, make sense of their lives and the actors who play them are constantly working on one another, they’re in it every moment and it’s exciting to watch them work. There’s just enough moments of laughter in this play to keep you engaged, and satiate your appetite for enjoyment. This show is sure to be a fringe hit this year and hopefully will continue to play afterwards. I highly recommend it.
