This is the standard Fringe shows should be at. Two beautiful scripts showcasing two very different directions of a feeling we all experience- guilt. The exploration of such a feared feeling was so incredible in the writing and acting of it.

A terrific evening.... full review

Armadillo," wrote an interesting dark comedy about the psychological aspects of aging and caregiving causing moral dilemmas and resentments which leads to disaster. ... full review

Guilt was a interesting look at self reflection, and the misconceptions of humanity as a whole. Both short plays told good stories about unique yet ordinary people who had been put into unfortunate circumstances. Very enjoyable.... full review
