My overall impression

I really enjoyed Riot Grrrl. The story and the concept really reminded me of my days as an idealistic youth fighting for what I believed in. The script really sucked me in. The acting was terrific. Darla (Poonam Basu) was especially extraordinary. Her rendition of a young, confused Jehova’s Witness was not only believable, but captivating and hilarious. Harriet (Tiffany Mo) did a great job playing a young, angry, rebellious girl with an allowance. Her “I hate everything” line brought down the house. Joslyn (Zoe Lillian) was excellent as an optimistic idealist and did a great job improvising when technical difficulties arose. Last but not least, Steph (Emma Servant) was a powerful leader of the crew. Her energy was infectious and her performance was outstanding. This hour long show is definitely worth a watch. I plan on seeing it again!
