Great acting, Absorbing, Clever

See it if Sadly it's closed but this show was wonderful. Beautiful intimate space and excellent story. I was fortunate to see Jessica Pimental!

Don't see it if If it comes back and you are not a fan of one person shows, this is probably not for you.

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

See it if you're up for an absorbing solo show about a young woman couch-surfing her way through life. Insightful & intimate. Courtney Shaw's amazing.

Don't see it if you don't like solo shows and don't like dramas (this goes to some dark places, despite having a fair amount of rueful humor).

Incisive, Beautifully played, Resonant, Intense, Raw

See it if you are unafraid to enter into a raw, gripping encounter in an intimate space with a total stranger who has a story to tell you.

Don't see it if you want to see a play with dialog, or want your theater to provide you with answers by the end. Read more

Ambitious, Absorbing, Clever, Great acting, Quirky

See it if A woman’s fascinating world view will hold your attention. Thiswell written monologue is being preformed by different actress/director pairs

Intelligent, Great writing, Great acting, Ambitious

See it if you would like to watch a young actor tell you and a dozen-or-so other people her hour-long story -- in a small set-less, fully-lit space.

Don't see it if you're expecting to see something about a female surfer based on the Southern California coast. It's nothing like that. Read more

Absorbing, Great writing, Edgy, Quirky, Intense

See it if you are interested in seeing a solo performance about one woman's attempts to find acceptance and a sense of belonging. Poetically written.

Don't see it if you are not a fan of intimate theater experiences. Also, there are no bathroom facilities at this venue.

Well-acted, Entertaining, Intimate, Same script, but different actor & director each week, Good story & concept

See it if ... you like solo shows in small spaces. (It's a store-front art gallery.) Well-written Karen Eilbacher (4/24-25 only) was excellent. 1 hr.

Don't see it if ... you're not interested in hearing personal stories about a couch-surfer
