What I liked

I dug this show as soon as the lights came up. Aaron Francis created a set that puts you there better than any other show I’ve seen this year. Where as others use space, light, sound, etc to create whatever mood, this set is it. We’re there with the actors and the ride is great. It evokes Alien and all the good submarine movies. Closed space, dire circumstances, personal frictions. It’s a great formula and this cast rocks it. So natural and sharp. The title continues to evolve as the play does and that’s solid writing in my book. By the end, dare I say, the audience has been on a journey of their own? (Fired!)

It’s great. It’s a great Fringe show. A great use of the space and a little technology. The cast is stellar and the script is right on. Everything fits and works and it’s just a fun, funny, moving ride.

What I didn't like

Well, I’m always gonna say do it for real in a space ship hovering above Earth but these Fringe budgets are so tight…

My overall impression

Surprising, inventive and effective.
See it.
