Great acting, Edgy, Intense, Thought-provoking, Confusing

See it if You want to see a great performer tell an intense story about the psychological effects of sexual assault.

Don't see it if You're uncomfortable w/dark themes. You want a story w/clarity. The play's in 2 sections that don't connect well & leave you w/questions.

Absorbing, Great acting, Great writing, Intense, Relevant

Great acting, Disappointing, Intense, Ambitious, Edgy

See it if For Lexie Braverman's performance. She gives the story its emotional center.

Don't see it if You cannot see past the play's lapses in storytelling. Some of the dark, interesting anecdotes hold up much better than the play as a whole.

Absorbing, Ambitious, Edgy, Great writing, Intense

See it if you love dark, intense stories that take you on a roller coaster of emotions with the character.

Don't see it if you are easily worked up or triggered by difficult subject matter. This one could bring up a lot of bad feelings.

Theatre is Easy
April 2nd, 2017

"As this play is a monologue, its strength depends on the performer, who must create this entire world alone onstage. Luckily, Braverman is up to the task, showcasing her impressive acting skills...Ridley’s powerful script offers a compelling commentary on societal misogyny and patriarchal power struggles...However, Andrea’s delusional and paranoid state sometimes eclipses the story, and a bit more clarity could create a better platform for the ideas Ridley so smartly showcases."
