Ester Mira and Lisa K. Wyatt deftly portray two women in a therapist’s office delving into the subject of their past lives together. Both women played off of one another with balance and believability, and I loved that they were sometimes men, sometimes women, sometimes related, but always passionate about one another in their many incarnations.
Playwright, Jim Blanchette, skillfully wrote a script that women of any age or look could easily play. It’s a breath of fresh air.
What I didn't like
This definitely is not something I say about most Fringe shows, seeing as how fast paced the festival is in general, but I almost wanted more time to see specifically how each past life effected the two women and their interactions with one another – a Netflix series would do the trick beautifully.
My overall impression
Transference revisits ideas from On a Clear Day You Can See Forever, but adds a very dark twist! With clever black humor it explores how our past existences color and shape our present lives.
