ROSE YAO certified reviewer June 26, 2023
Incredibly complex and layered story, simultaneously involving a near future where human existence is primarily virtual, as well as a Victorian-era setting that makes it feel like you are but an observer of time, unbound by dimensional constraints. Simple set and costume changes make it easy to jump into the story as it is, but make sure you get a central seat, as the full width of the stage is used. Overall, the story is engaging and at all times shocking; there is more unsaid than what is obvious, and good direction saves the audience from sensationalized violence. But don't expect to come out of this safe and sound; you'll be looking at your neighbors differently now!... full review

Mind-bending. Intriguing. Characters weren't cardboard clichés but they still kept up a facade. The context and content are more tethered to reality and the soon-to-be present day than I expected.... full review

I've been waiting to see a performance of this since I read the script last year and my expectations were low - this is a HARD script and Fringe can be a mixed bag. I was pleasantly surprised to find a cast of truly great actors, direction with fantastic pacing, incredible clarity, and an overall production that stuck the landing. I knew what was coming and I was still creeped out. The best drama I've seen thus far at Fringe. Bravo and brava.... full review
