SIRAY RODGERS certified reviewer June 23, 2022
That was an absolute amazing time for me and my family member that joined me! The show was very well put together and thoughtful, after learning that the performers were also the writers I was amazed even more to find that out! I strongly recommend it being showcased again!... full review

This was a two-person show, but each character stood out individually from the others. Well-written and well-acted. What a performance! ... full review
MOD BECHER certified reviewer June 23, 2022
I was stunned! Left without words in the best way! I couldn’t believe I left a show with the word “abortion” in the title feeling so happy?? It was full of laughs while also being heavy hitting and educational. It felt like a revelation, like if more eyes were on this performance alone, there would be so much more understanding, so much more fire and desire into making a difference. They taught and told me about this serious topic in a way that eased me into the pain but didn’t refrain from the truth. Not only am I seeing it more than once, but I’m telling everyone I can as well!... full review

This was such an amazing performance. I took myself and youth from the LA LGBT Youth Center and we were all blown away! It was so amazing to see POC representation as aswell as LGBTQ representation. The youth were so excited they wanted to see it again as well as the movie! Thank you again and I wish you the best of luck!... full review

ISHIKA MUCHHAL certified reviewer June 18, 2022
This is by far the best show I have seen at Fringe this year!!! And so timely, really reclaiming the narrative in our time when the power is constantly being taken away from women, especially WOC, when it comes to control over our body. Such incredible storytelling through a mix of performance styles, incorporating character sketch impressions, poetry, prose, rap, dance, and conventional theatre dialogue. It was like a brilliant SNL skit that really made you laugh and cry like crazy!... full review
ALEX PETUNIA certified reviewer June 17, 2022
My spirit was moved. An empowering show that braves a subject that must be talked about more with such humanity in these times. I appreciate how the show highlights all aspects of a person's abortion experience and their relationships along the way. Jairis and Mareshah are a phenomenal duo but also dynamic performers as individuals. I cried and laughed and felt a lasting impact. The ending was magic! A must see show!... full review
