Indulgent, Quirky, Disappointing, Resonant, Tedious

See it if You want to see one woman’s quirky interpretation of her journey through the aging and death of her parents. Some interesting staging.

Don't see it if You’re not up for another one person show that’s really theatre as therapy for the writer/performer.

Intense, Funny, Profound, Moving, Edgy

See it if Woman reconstructs her shattered identity after her mother’s death. Solo actress plays 3 generations with great feeling. Brilliant staging.

Don't see it if You aren’t interested in a painful, intense non-linear journey. A brutally honest view of the past sheds light on the present.

"Salas takes an intense, heart-wrenching story and infuses it with intrigue with an intense physical performance. Her background as a dancer is evident in her remarkably muscular arms which...glide smoothly across her body or perform rigid, modern dance-influenced gestures...Where most solo shows only scarcely employ props and technology, 'Hope' uses them to maximum effect, making for a fascinating and beautifully enhanced production.”

“Salas is contained in a very narrow body, but she is a powerful force on the stage...She has complete Martha Graham-like control...Salas gives us the complicated characters of her father...mother...a brave sex-worker...and she gives us her raw, honest self from childhood to now with all the beauty marks and other warts in various stages of healing...Salas can disappear so deeply into a character that we think someone else is in the room. It’s mind-blowing magic.”
