What I liked

The repartee between the two actors on stage was a skillful push and pull. Their relationship provided many comedic fits and starts that ultimately led us to a sweet unexpected finish. The audience was right there with them every step of the way and felt their resolution with a collective sigh of satisfaction.
The amazing part of this whole experience was realizing that Jessica Durdock Moreno wrote, directed, and starred in this beautiful little piece. And she did it all with aplomb and grace.

What I didn't like

I wish I had something to add here, but it would only be nitpicking a few blocking aspects. It was a lovely experience.

My overall impression

To Richard begins with a soft lullaby, but within the first few minutes of the play the crescendo builds to a scream of pain. I found myself laughing and tearing up in the same gasp. This is a Fringe show not to be missed. Get your tickets now.
