My overall impression

Brad C Light’s performance is staggering — a real triumph that takes his character through a bewildering range of situations, emotions and insights into geopolitics.

The fact that he does this almost entirely without props and while seated on a chair in the middle of the stage is even more impressive.

Brad Light rages, whimpers and beseeches as his nameless protagonist slowly unravels before our eyes.

This is acting at its very best — stripped to the bone and carried through with nuance, aplomb and passion.

You must see this one-man, eighty-minute monologue. If for nothing else but the fevered reality Brad Light brings to a character hovering on the very edges of reason.
