My overall impression

We’ve all had experiences of the wrong guy, but Donna Thomas will make you breathe a huge sigh of relief(between all the laughter), that at least he was never THAT BAD!

In only 30 minutes she shares an incredibly personal story, which creates every emotion response and leaves you wanting to hug and cheer for Team Donna! The combination of some very interesting AV props adds a clever and funny layer of depth to the performance.

Donna’s comedic timing is a perfect counterpoint to some really dark moments, underscoring how easy it can be to make the wrong decision and suddenly find yourself in a situation that seems almost impossible to escape. Behind her charming exterior, we find a smart and capable woman who not only managed to walk away from her predicament, but ended up being incredibly successful & inspiring. It’s a great show, and with three more performances, will only get better through the festival!
