My overall impression

As a queer lady I’m used to seeing a lot of cliche, predictable queer art. But this witty script kept me guessing all the way to the end. It’s really funny, but also delves into dark territory as the two women reveal themselves to each other and us. A show like this requires two strong actors to carry it and they don’t disappoint, playing the interwoven comedy and drama with aplomb. Laura Nargi brings a guileless charm to the too-blunt character of Kelli. Paula Deming endears in a very different way as the more awkward, reserved Arlin, who I would totally date because I’m into angry feminist rants.
