What I liked

I loved the fluidity and energy with which Constance moved through an array of characters, as well as the quality costuming. Although the subject is very serious, she managed to infuse some nice moments of levity throughout. The pace clipped along nicely and the show was completed in under an hour.

What I didn't like

There was one small segment that featured many news headlines that were a bit distracting from the particular monologue being performed. I’d like to see no slides there, and have the headline slides just cover the transition into that piece instead.

My overall impression

This show was well directed and performed and a very informative and moving exploration of the Anglophone crisis in Cameroon.
