Review by TERI THOMAS

June 17, 2018

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.

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

To Richard!

A world premiere from Hollywood and Edinburgh Fringe award winner Jessica Durdock Moreno. A white lady and a Latino man cross paths in the woods of Connecticut. Chaos ensues. Hilarity abounds. There may be hugging. Discount code HUG for $10 tickets.
