What I liked

I liked the processed anger and the glee and the goofiness.

What I didn't like

N/a

My overall impression

A show that deals with the need to perform, be perfect, heartbreak, the end of the world, and whether any of what we do ever even matters. Oh, and a dash of mental illness. Young folds all this into 50 minutes while keeping the show light, even silly, because the conceit is that this desperate character is going to perform all of Macbeth because, eff it, the world-is-ending-why-not.

If these are the stakes this character needed to show us everything, it’s worth it, because she shows us the drive to create despite having to work a job and the catharsis of grief during a breakup when you don’t run back into their arms.

I dug this show.
