What I liked

All of it. The actors, the direction, the script, the lighting.

What I didn't like

I’d love to see a second act- even though the piece is complete in and of itself.

My overall impression

Breathtaking. In the context of Fringe this show does a stellar job putting up a quick and stunning theatrical experience. It’s worth the ticket price and more, and complete in and of itself, but it was SO good I wish it had a second act. The actors are perfect, the direction and script are lovely. I’m still thinking about this show two days later, especially as a nanny for a child who is on the edge of the spectrum- the depiction of autism and how it varies from person to person is wonderful- the production team has done an impressive job of showing instead of telling- the topic is tricky and nuanced and it is handled carefully and boldly in this awesome new play.
