Review by DAVID MACDOWELL BLUE

June 12, 2017 certified reviewer

What I liked

The cast and direction.
The original (live) music which accompanied the play.
The wickedly funny but heartbreaking script!

What I didn't like

I’m hard-pressed to think of anything I did not like.

My overall impression

A wonderful show—sharp, thought-provoking, horrifying and funny at the same time for the same reasons. I sometimes talk about what I call “Theatre of Dreams” in which a performance has the logic of a dream, as if one were actually watching a dream. This is about when life becomes like a dream. Well, after all where do dreams come from if not here, the so-called real world? What a powerful piece of theatre, in which the emotions of the characters genuinely spill out into the audience like fog. It functions as a series of revelations, each more disturbing than the last, until we are left with a dark terrible vision weirdly funny as it is heart-breaking.

2 for 1

Two hilarious one woman shows for the price of one! It's double the self-indulgence! Double the breakdowns! And twice you’ll ask — Is she okay?
