Review by CASSIDY DAVIS

What I liked

I loved the staging of it. There was a moment where the character who kills himself walks across stage, head still in the noose, and it sent chills all over my body. Absolutely terrifying, but also so so cool. I’ve never seen a show like this before. It’s definitely not your typical story about suicide. ALSO Daniela Rivera is incredible in this show. Perfectly cast. Her scenes were grounded in a very real way, and her performance was absolutely captivating. I loved every second of it.

What I didn't like

Nothing.

My overall impression

So dark and yet so many comedic moments within the story. Very, very well written. I think it would be extremely hard to find moments in a story about suicide for comedic relief, but the writer and director achieved this perfectly. It’s a show that made me laugh and cry, and cringe a lot (in the best way). Very, very good and something I would highly recommend everyone go see.
