A wonderful show that illustrates struggle between the right and left brain. The two leads effortlessly traverse an an emotional mine field. It is thought provoking and at times explosive. I eagerly await a second viewing, as to pick up more from the writer. ... full review

The Same Room is a visceral examination of an all too common human experience: our capacity to wage war with ourselves. It’s a poetic, thrilling, and excruciatingly honest piece of theatre, and well worth the journey. ... full review

I've been telling friends that The Same Room is "No Exit but with a happy ending." This usually inspires a laugh and the question "So heaven is other people?" Well, yes. So is hell. Plus the full range of everything in between. Two young women literally end up thrown (by who? or what?) into a room. We and they pretty soon realize they are dead, outside of time and space as we understand it. Nobody knows what happens next, but they must somehow handle it. In this work, the two are anything but strangers--thus both hell and heaven. Adding to to the tension is the nice touch that the lights above the locked doors where they entered change based on what they do or (maybe) feel. Might they escape when the lights turn green instead of re... full review

Kelley Pierre gives a beautifully fragile performance in this mind bending drama that is a fascinating look at the human mind, our human conditions and the obstacles that need to be overcome when navigating human relationships. Kelley also wrote the unique and thrilling play. She’s so talented! Make more stuff! ... full review

Our story begins with our two characters Thyma(Kelly Pierre) and Aspid(Sam Sheeks) simultaneously thrown into a dark, locked chamber. The only thing there to take up any space is a small table with two chairs, and the horrible, gut-wrenching realization that these two people who seem have a great deal of history with each other, are now locked in this prison together with no seemingly way out. I am hesitant to say any much more about the story, as I am a firm believer in not spoiling this production and it needing to be experienced in person for the first. I strongly encourage you to go into this play, with as little knowledge as you can. ... full review

This play was a wonderful physical realization of the abstracts of the human mind. I love the build up, where at first you’re wondering who these two people are to each other until it culminates and without spoiling too much, I will just say something along the lines of “birds of a feather.” This play touches on the idea that we all have different aspects of self within us, sometimes it’s just about which of those selves you listen to. If your looking for a thought provoking and emotionally engaging show I highly recommend The Same Room.... full review

Though it is clear a lot of thought and physical effort went into shaping this piece, it is a challenge to grasp what the piece is actually about, all the more so after a post bows mini-speech addressed to hoping that anyone in the audience going through the same thing will be able to take something from their experience watching the show. ... full review
