What I liked

The text. The performance. The clever use of the corpses on stage. Everything.

What I didn't like

I’d be curious to see the show with a better established sense of a time clock. In its current iteration, there’s a vague sense that the authorities will eventually show up but that eventuality does not feel eminent nor does it add urgency. This isn’t so much something I didn’t like, it’s more just an idea. I’d be curious to see what happens when there’s a clear sense of time running out.

My overall impression

This is one of the best shows I’ve seen in the Fringe. Excellent writing, excellent performance. I loved it. It reminded me of The Fever by Wallace Shawn – that’s how both literary and theatrical the text is. Deftly examining the bizarre dichotomies of modern life such as loneliness in a crowded city, alienation within the forced intimacy of small living spaces and yearning to connect while desperately seeking solitude. I want to see it again.
