What I liked

First: the coffee was very good, thank you.

I appreciated how Annie made the effort to make me feel comfortable while she told the story. In some immersive shows, the audience can feel like they’re being forced into playing a role they didn’t know they were going to have to play and it never felt like that with Annie. Because she was so relaxed and open, it made me relaxed and open and when there was some banter it didn’t feel awkward or forced.

And the story itself was very interesting. Really encouraged me to look at events through different perspectives. All in all, a really unique experience that should make you leave feeling uplifted.

What I didn't like

This show is so intimate and specific to who is watching that I doubt my commentary will necessarily apply to your experience. If you’re the sort of person who finds being vulnerable difficult, then maybe this isn’t the show for you.

My overall impression

Annie provides a lovely story about loss and memory that made me feel a gamut of emotions, and even though she was doing almost all the talking, she really made me feel listened to and drew me into her world.
