My overall impression

Seen 15 shows at this years Fringe so far and this is one of my top top picks.
She has only one show left and I encourage all to go. Such a beautiful, charming and honest story of Mariah’s story of being terrified by a long flight and having to endure the journey next to a Jehovah’s witness who brings her back to her strict catholic upbringing and the questions that have arisen throughout her adult years.
Mariah is an amazing storyteller, never did she seem like she was performing. She was just telling us a story as if we/I was the only person in the room. So many times in this piece I had to close my eyes and think about how I related and what I thought about her perceptions of her relationship with religion (Not God)
I found myself nodding, disagreeing and wanting to raise my hand to ask questions throughout the piece. Also, the amazing impressions of other characters (my favorite being the child version of Mariah who would do the devils voice the exact same way any child would do) were a joy to watch.
Please see this show. Whilst you can. An amazing, charming, thought provoking and funny show all rolled into one. Bravo.
