What I liked

I loved the unapologetic use of the actors cultural languages. There is a beautiful connection and joy that can only be shown when people are in their own “wheel house”. The movement moments were striking and vibrant. And even though the characters were facing strange and difficult problems, one couldn’t help but root for them to succeed.

What I didn't like

The theatre itself had strange pillars in front of the seats for structural support, which made the viewing of this wonderful piece somewhat annoying as one wpuld have to constantly shift to see what was happening. (A critique of the space not the play). With Fringe comes certain limitations, and this one would love to see what this cast and crew could do with more time and budget.

My overall impression

Thought provoking. Unapologetic. Sincere. The meaning behind the show is clear and the acting spot on. It brings out its questions with humanity, humor, and hopeful hopelessness. These are the stories that need to be told.
