Harrowing, Intense, Unfocused, Well acted, Well staged

See it if you want to be in the mind of a woman who suffered a horrifying sexual assault. The pain is presented intensely.

Don't see it if you want to learn how the woman has learned to carry on or to put the assault into a broader societal/international context. Read more

Absorbing, Intense, Intelligent, Dark, Slow

See it if You want to see a unique story about two of the most personal experiences this woman is likely to ever have. Darkly disturbing.

Don't see it if You're not prepared to confront some really serious issues on a deeply personal level. This show meanders a bit but it's uniquely told.

Absorbing, Great acting, Edgy, Intense, Profound

See it if familial relationships are meaningful to you.Brilliant performance describing the exotic & familiar of an Indian family's response to rape.

Don't see it if you would be uncomfortable watching a one person show exploring the aftermath of a violent rape.

Intense, Intelligent, Great acting, Thought-provoking, Resonant

See it if You like fragmented storytelling. You enjoy movement-based staging. You want riveting storytelling. You want great acting.

Don't see it if You don't want or can't hear stories about sexual violence. You dislike one-performer shows. You don't like intense, dark themes.

Banal, Confusing, Disappointing, Excruciating, Great acting

See it if You have an hour to see some great acting...period. The play is a howling bore!! Lucky people escaped midway thru, I wasn't so lucky.

Don't see it if You can get a table at MacDonald's

Intense, Intelligent, Sad, Emotional

See it if you're interested in storytelling that takes you on a personal journey and searches for answers in the wake of a traumatic event.

Don't see it if you do not like one-woman shows and cannot handle the dark and tragic recounting of a sexual assault and its aftermath.

Intense, Harrowing, Resonant

See it if you enjoy deeply personal monologues about difficult subject matter. This spare, well done piece was difficult to watch but well done.

Don't see it if you're sensitive to pieces about violence against women and lots of sudden loud noises.

Absorbing, Intelligent, Riveting, Intense, Thought-provoking

See it if You can see a well crafted one woman show about the aftermath of a horrific rape on the girl and her Hindu family.

Don't see it if It hits too close to home. It is difficult to watch her going through so much pain.

Critic Reviews (1)

The Globe and Mail
September 26th, 2013
For a previous production

“Sinha has written a truly harrowing piece of theatre, a play all the more remarkable for being her first…Though presented in a chopped-up chronology, there’s nothing fuzzy about Sinha’s narrative, and everything rings true in its heartbreaking uniqueness. It all feels deeply personal...Director Alan Dilworth provides a stylish but sensitive staging for a story of violence against women. He keeps the tension high throughout…The whole package impresses thoroughly.”
