What I liked

It felt like sharing a private memory with a friend. As the memory unfolds, it is pressed into a new form as it collides with the present, and then, finally, blossoms into a self-realization that the audience, no matter what their relationship to drugs, will identify with. She did an amazing job of filling the space, and the 30 minute show flies by—you simply can NOT take your eyes off of her.

What I didn't like

Nothing dragged, so that’s good, but if ANYTHING, maybe she could have explored the relationship portion more, giving additional texture to that.

My overall impression

Pea effortlessly creates time and space and music around her as she leads you through a sometimes heartbreaking but often hilarious examination of her relationship with drugs.
