My overall impression

There is something special about walking into a tiny theatre knowing you are about to see a new work created in the DIY style.  This is how theatre magic manifests, in simple sets, props created by the actor, a body willing to walk into the unknown-on a non predictable physical journey is thrilling. This is what Fiona gives to her work, gives to her audience.  All of herself. All of her fears. All of her excitement. The way her right hand shakes in a moment reveals we are seeing an indescribable energy travel and it affects the heart in a subtle way. I swear your breath will find stillness as you witness the swing swaying back and forth onstage even without Fiona sitting upon it, is takes you back to the days when childhood was freedom, there be no need for description it just was a way of living because you believed anything was possible. You didn’t have to seek it out or read daily affirmations. You just knew you could do anything once you put your mind to it! What a gorgeous reminder for the adult heart, mind and soul. Go witness. Go live in Charlotte’s World!
I even have the audacity to say this is the Spirit of Fringe 2018.
