What I liked

The simple projection of “beach cliffs at sunset” sets the perfect tone for the parry. The balance shifts ever so slightly between Jake and his Angel
You’ll find yourself doing your own life review.

What I didn't like

Opening moment may have had an incorrect music cue.

My overall impression

David Caprita’s (Jake) 30 minute, one-act is a totally absorbing and compelling trip to a Malibu beach where Jake wrestles with his guardian angel (Josh Wingate) who is not about to let him complete his task. Neither is willing to give a inch. David’s beautifully crafted dialogue is well staged and directed by Matt Duggan. Quintessentially all that represents Fringe. A must see!
