COMMENTS:

This was my first “What the heck was that about?” show of the Fringe. I was totally game for the whole first act and most of the second and then it ended and I just sat in my seat wondering what had just happened. The design of the show was very ramshackle and confusing and the direction did not help unravel the leaps in time and distinctions between reality and delusions. I have no idea what it was really about.

POST-FRINGE PREDICTIONS:

I don’t think this has a future, but I think the playwright has some talent; I’d like to believe the direction was the culprit here…
