Review by ANALISA SIEMSEN

June 04, 2018 certified reviewer

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.

WHOAH! LOOKS GOOD! Seriously. #Seriously

From 2x winners of Best of Fringe! Boxing Your Demons: Like if David Lynch became a health/fitness influencer and made an immersive theatre show about cognitive dissonance. Cute workout clothes and chakra crystals recommended. #gratitude

Batter Up!

PICK OF THE FRINGE! "Batter Up" is for anyone who's ever been addicted to a hobby; in Brett's case, baseball. Come share in his obsession and watch him perform feats of memory that'll shock and delight. Catch him before he's going, going, gone!
