What I liked

The concept itself is great, but in the wrong hands could have fallen flat on its ass (and has done, in many productions). So credit really goes to the performers and whatever guidance they had. The ability to mould a solo show around each participant’s answers to very broad existential questions is incredibly impressive. The production design was inventive yet minimalistic and not distracting.

What I didn't like

For once, I have no criticism. I was probably one of the more difficult audience members to win over with a show like this, but they managed it within the first minute.

My overall impression

Excellent. Off the top of my head, the best immersive show I’ve seen in such a small space. Certainly the best representation I’ve seen of that childlike wonder that we’re all trying desperately to recapture as adults. A true testament to the power of imagination – from both the performers and what they were able to invoke in the participant. And this comes from someone for whom suspension of disbelief has always been a stumbling block in these kinds of experiences.
