What I liked

I enjoyed the show’s exploration of subject matter ranging from sexuality, the feelings of hopelessness and alienation a person can experience in modern life, and struggles with mental health. At times it felt like a piece that would have felt right at home in the ‘90s.

What I didn't like

I did not know what to expect from this show based on the synopsis but I was pleasantly surprised. Although Billie and Special K are rich characters that have dynamic interactions with one another from start to end, I feel like a supporting cast or other perspectives may help leave their interactions more space to breathe. However, my impression that this is a show specifically tailored to more intimate venues may be at odds with this opinion.

My overall impression

I very much enjoyed this show. The austere duo ensemble deliver each line in a wholly convincing and organic manner.
