What I liked
The writing was clever and sharp— Emily was able to successfully write beautifully distinctive characters with smart and engaging dialogue
Each actor brought skill, openness, and heart to each of their roles. Everyone was uniquely funny and equally vulnerable, bringing authenticity and love to each character.
For a play so reliant on dialogue, the director, Joe, was able to create a unique and stunning visual atmosphere. The projections were beautiful, the costume design was so very nice— I loved !
It was lovely to watch a story that was able to engage with queerness without making it the centre conflict.
The story was funny as heck! But also haunting !!!! I thought and cried but I also laughed !!
What I didn't like
I particularly liked a choice they made in one of the last flashback which played with time — it was lovely and I would have loved to see more of that in the rest of the show!!
My overall impression
Sunday Night At Jane’s was filled to the brim with emotion, humour, and love! There was exquisite movement between laughter and pathos. The play was able to trace the delicate line between creating a work that is funny, and one which honours the emotion journey of each of the characters.
