Review by SHAWN CARTER PETERSON

June 19, 2012

My overall impression

This autobiographical oeuvre will take you on an unexpected rollercoaster! I spent the entire show trying to get a glimpse of who this Neecole person was….and I saw her… a little girl in the midst of the insanity around her…a young tween overcoming the insanity around her…a college student creating insanity….and a burgeoning woman taking hold of the insanity that existed to step into her own womanhood. A well written piece about a sometimes chaotic life..that lets you into your own humanity as you see the love she has for those she calls family…in particular…her mother. She is not her mother…but , on some levels….she is…and she pays homage to that. Well done!

Sins

Can we ever stop paying for the past? Can the person we want to be ever escape the person we are now and were then? What price must be paid for not only our own crimes, but those of people close to us?

Anna St. Hesia Dreams

Anna is trapped in an anesthesia-related coma. Her only way out is to sink deeper into fantasy – a dark fairytale where people weave dreams into tourist destinations. When reality isn’t worth it, is fantasy the next best thing?
