“The Same Room” is about as intimately intense as it can get. Playwright and Actress Kelley Pierre's razor-sharp script points a laser beam on the effects of retained anger and resentment, and the gifts that forgiveness, understanding, and even self-acceptance, might bring. Together with Sam Sheeks, the two actresses play off each other seamlessly as their two characters in “The Same Room” take us through the kinds of wounded animal reactions that can spring from such pain and resentment, whether fueled by stubbornness and insecurities, or brought on by host of other obstacles that we place in front of ourselves and others when we refuse to accept or open ourselves to all variety of forgiveness. ... full review

Once again, Lucid Dramatics has brought to the Hollywood Fringe Festival a uniquely creative exploration of the human soul. "The Same Room" written and performed by Kelley Pierre, performed by Sam Sheeks, and directed by Scott Golden, is a remarkable revelation about self. It's a mirror we can all look into and be all the better for. Pierre's writing thrusts us into a thought-provoking, emotional rollercoaster of loathing and love, of humor and disdain, and of what it ultimately takes to be accepting of ourselves. Sheeks and Pierre presented a master class in being and Lucid Dramatics delivered the goods for the fourth year in a row. ... full review

"Pierre and Sheeks do an excellent job as the two women figuring out the puzzle while they’re also seething at each other." Read the full review here: http://fringereview.co.uk/review/hollywoodfringe/2019/the-same-room/... full review

REBECCA LARSEN certified reviewer June 23, 2019
I’m really glad I got to see this. It’s exactly what you want a fringe show to be- a development ground for young talent. Kelley Pierre’s script is short, sweet, and deep. Both actresses were focused and honest, and Golden’s direction was elegant and athletic.... full review
ERIK BLAIR certified reviewer June 23, 2019
A smart, physically sharp and exceptionally performed story. Everything about this show kept me on the edge of my seat with compelling acting and writing that covered an impressive sliver of a broken relationship. One of the smartest shows I've seen at Fringe this year.... full review
