What I liked

The radical simplicity, the courage, the focus on tiny acts of mercy, the quiet recruiting of audience members.
The remarkable, courageous acting of Randel and Steed.
The music and light designs.

What I didn't like


My overall impression

In a brief hour in this small room, Steed’s artwork takes us far, on journeys deep into our own lives — our fiercest loves and losses, our unspoken fears, our regrets. Ghosts fill the space, charging the air with emotion and meaning.
We are fortunate to have this “professional make believer” (as Steed describes herself) making her art in our city. And fortunate that she can find such fine collaborators.
An experience like no other at Fringe. Or anywhere.
