What I liked

Denzil is able to shave more than 30 years off with a quick costume change and channel the spirit of an intellectual but rebellious teen, who as the pressure mounts to conform to society can’t find enough solace in playing basketball or rocking out to his favorite band. Along the way there are many laugh out loud moments as he criticizes religion and the powers that be in the search for meaning in life. The idea that we are here to exalt God is skewered spot on with the line, “Surely, we’re here to do something more than be God’s fluffer!”

What I didn't like

Perhaps it would be a violation of the meaning of the play, but I’d like to know what happened the next day. The play hints at a dark outcome, but leaves the result of the inciting incident in the story somewhat ambiguous.

My overall impression

Denzil Meyers revisits a pivotal night in his life long ago in an autobiographical one man show, and we find out that, for better or worse it has made all the difference!
