What I liked

I loved Meg’s embodiment of herself at different ages/stages of life. Her use of props at some point! Her funny characterizations of others in her life.

What I didn't like

Exploring more movement perhaps and increasing use of props could be fun!

My overall impression

Meg delivers a funny, deeply personal, and brutally honest introspection into her upbringing shaped by her Chinese-American identity, difficult home life, and reckoning of personal and societal biases as an adult. And despite is being deeply personal, she brings out the universal feelings of self-doubt, judgement, otherness, regret, and forgiveness that we could all relate to.
