This was one of my five nominees for my sponsored award- the Conversation Creation award, sponsored by That’s What She Didn’t Say and The Outdoor Voices Festival.
Jessica is an expert storyteller- likable and vibrant. The writing is impeccable with a lovely beginning, middle, and end, structured expertly to give us a little more theatrical oomph than many solo shows that read like ted talks or just long storytelling shows. The pacing is perfect, the amount of characterizations and they way they were portrayed is lovely. This was just a beautiful, gentle, and simply done show that gave a really beautiful insider look at OCD and anxiety.
A father rules a made-up nation with his family as his only subjects. When his son takes the mission too far and his daughter questions everything, he fights for power in the face of family, country, and reality.
