CONSTANCE JAQUAY STRICKLAND certified reviewer June 27, 2019
CATHARSIS is a meditation on the (de) stabilizing effects of adoption. With paint, a canvas, a hammer, and a wood board, CATHARSIS captures the spirit of the Fringe! Megh will steal your heart with her carefree dancing and the way her voice crawls up behind your neck as she sings, like a secret you’ve been hiding. The time she takes within the space – no rushing, using pauses as action – will stir your soul. And when she begins to break the comfortable use of language while reading a letter from her birth mother, you, too, will never quite understand why she Meg was given up for adoption. But you do see a magical, beautiful artist who will thrive and who wasn’t afraid to say aloud in a room full of strangers, “Why me?” ... full review

Shows like this are what Fringe is all about, in my opinion. It’s like stepping into another person’s world for thirty minutes. ... full review
