MATT WITTENBERG certified reviewer June 18, 2018
"What I Want To Say To You," was a powerful and well-acted performance piece. It explores an area of sexual assault that unfortunately is not often addressed in the after-effects that survivors have to face. Both actors were impressive in their roles and the narrative is easy to follow despite the lack of dialogue. The music complimented the performance on stage extremely well and added to the performance's message. It is an undeniably tough subject to experience, but I highly recommend this performance!... full review

A genuine tour de force for Em Hoggett, the hero of this piece. A gem of a production. Very effective treatment of the subject that survivors can relate to. Honest, creative and inspiring... Brava!... full review

Powerful theatre experience. I saw the show with my wife and teenaged daughter. The show communicates all the stages of crisis and is well articulated through a mix of different dance styles including wardrobe changes communicating her emotional journey.

I would also like to mention that the casting and costuming of the Villain was brilliant. It's impressive how you can tell such a haunting story without dialogue. ... full review

The passion of her voice ripples through the humble theatre vibrating the hearts and ears of the audience. A fire that can only be captured in a moment of truth. A moment that left an uncomfortable audience with a vivid audible imprint. It was the battle cry of a rape survivor. A survivor that was able to share her story despite the obstacles around her. Grief is meant to reveal someones character, and Em showed us that the fire inside her could be greater than the fire around, regardless of the helplessness that one can feel at times. A big thanks to Em and Umar for this production, for revealing the side of the victims, those who have been... full review
