My overall impression

I went to the Wednesday night June 24th performance of this play and I’m still buzzing over the electric tour de force performances from the entire cast. From the first lines of the opening scene I knew I would be in for a non-stop thrill ride of raw emotion, passion, vulnerability, rage and elation. I was captivated and entranced by Mary Kelsey’s habitation of her character Sunshine who mastered the balance between sweet and frail yet with a gracefulness and inner-strength. Mary Kelsey truly shined as Sunshine and is kinetic on stage delivering lines that inter-weaved humor while also baring her soul all at the same time. She was like an interpretative dancer, using her body in an intelligent way to portray different states of mind—truly a mark of an exquisite actor that has depth. Sunshine will entice you to take her long-suffering soul into your fold and care for her delicately but alas she has her own will and her own dreams and in the end will bring you down to your knees begging for her to accept you into her world. Run to this play while it’s still playing during the Fringe Festival and be your own judge if you feel Sunshine can be redeemed from her life’s ultimate destiny…
