Writer and actor Anne Stockton's newest collaboration with director Austin Pendleton is a solo mystery that offers a witty look at the ways in which we are swept away by the scenarios we imagine for our lives. More…
Nikki is being interviewed by a detective in the high-level financial firm where she works about the disappearance of two very valuable rings earlier that morning. But, as new information is revealed about the characters' past and about the current situation, the story begins to unfold into a 'whodunnit' play.
for a previous production "Part of what makes this a compelling story is that its ambiguous clues and its misdirections rope you into sympathy with a character that it might otherwise be hard to find common cause with. Stockton presents Nikki’s unraveling under pressure with sensitivity and subtlety...Austin Pendleton directs with a light touch...Together they offer an opportunity to detect the humanity and pain in the kind of character we would generally prefer to keep at a distance."

See it if Wonderfully acted one person play that keeps you questioning characters truthfulness and character
Don't see it if Don’t like one person plays without special scenery
See it if You want to see a masterful play about a woman who takes you on a very twisty journey. I won't say more...Great performance and direction.
Don't see it if You want a big, splashy play. This is close and intimate play.
See it if Solo written by performer, unexpected humor & plot twists as a woman w/bi-polar disorder unravels. Spare & well modulated direction.
Don't see it if Not easy entertainment, much delusion and pain here, for grown ups only.
See it if You enjoy one woman shows, great acting, super presentation and an entertaining and evocative discussion of mental illness.
Don't see it if You have no compassion or imagination and want to see a musical.
See it if Solo woman enacts her end of a police interview at work. She's batty but entertaining. Delicious twisted black humor and cool plot twists.
Don't see it if You don't want to journey into a warped mentality. You want something more moving or meaningful. This was cute and clever.
See it if You like one person shows, dark comedy, thought provoking plot, or whodunnit stories.
Don't see it if You have trouble with observing mental illness in theater, or prefer ensemble theater.
See it if you love theater. Always a privilege to see an actor demonstrating their acting chops in a one sided police interview filled with twists.
Don't see it if you don't enjoy seeing a solo actor on stage.
See it if You want to see a one woman show that takes you down a road and just when you think you know whats going on something shifts.
Don't see it if You are not comfortable seeing a play about someone who seems to have it all together but there is more to her than meets the eyes.
See it if like a one-woman show that has a plot with a twist.What starts off as a "whodunit" becomes a woman in the midst of a mental breakdown.
Don't see it if you are uncomfortable watching a woman devolve into her imaginary life.
Also You will be totally engaged in the outcome.
See it if As watching you can picture the other person she was talking to. Things are not what they seem to be. You slowly see that something is out
Don't see it if One woman show all on the stage is a end table and chair. Uncomfortable with polar disorder.
See it if You like fast paced one person monologues that are quirky yet illuminate mental illness.
Don't see it if You don’t want to be talked at by a crazy woman for an hour plus. It’s funny and enlightening but a bit unnerving.
See it if You want something short and entertaining. More of an acting exercise with a plot that keeps you engaged, than a full play.
Don't see it if Acting was pretty good but not great. I enjoyed it but can't say I'd recommend it to friends.
See it if You want to see a psychological dramedy where someone exhibits a touch of madness.
Don't see it if Don't like solo shows or can't hang in there when things start slow and then bog down a bit in middle.
