What I liked

Masterful performances from the entire cast, with some excellent theatrical devices – I was compelled from start to finish. It’s hard to pick a favorite moment because there were honestly so many, but the courtroom scene between Alli Miller and Heather Schmidt absolutely killed, with its incredible wordplay and powerhouse performances. Schoen Hodges did an incredible job finding specificity in each character, and Eric Curtis Johnson was hilarious and disturbing in equal measure! Michael Shaw Fisher is always a joy to watch, he inhabits his characters so fully that you’re mesmerized by his every move. Special mention also for his writing, which is truly stunning – intelligent, risk-taking and extraordinary.

My overall impression

I’ll put money on this play being the most clever & interesting you’ll see all Fringe. A wild ride full of lyrical beauty, excellent writing & acting and impeccable stagecraft & use of space. Original, hilarious, disturbing and thought-provoking.
