What I liked
I loved the recurring elements of sign language; in addition to providing a symmetry and a pacing throughout the story, it served almost akin to an exclamation mark or bold font for impactful moments and words.
I loved how intimate everything felt.
What I didn't like
I’m no help here, I adored everything about it.
My overall impression
This was my first time watching a “one woman show” but will not be my last. Watching Pea, one woman, morph into various characters (and ages) so flawlessly before my eyes, telling a story that captured my attention, brought me to laughter and to tears, but mostly left me in awe of her endless talents.
Blackberries, sign language, her mother’s words, were all reminders of how we carry our childhood experiences into our adulthood. It was a joy to watch Pea’s characters’ journey evolve from child to adult, as she challenges her own fears and preconceived notions through experimentation and self-discovery.
The show was a joy to watch and I found it very relatable.
