The cast here is great! The heart in this play shines, with humor coming from the pain and struggles of the main character. Tough subject matter, but worth this exploration.
What I didn't like
Some of the transitions from reality and fantasy and back were a bit clunky, but that’s a minor quibble.
My overall impression
Looking for some challenging adult content at this year’s Fringe? This might be the show for you. Exploring the world of a stressed out playwright named Colin, he finds that things can go from stressful to borderline suicidal rather quickly.
Weirdly balancing fantasy, comedy, heavy drama and some truly awkward family dynamics along the way, this piece is a call for people to simply respect one another and try to understand each other without irrational judgement. The is one of the most positive shows I have seen so far at Fringe, even if that positive message is hidden amongst some very dark ideas.
(It should be noted this show contains some very adult conversations and nudity.)
