Absorbing, Ambitious, Clever, Edgy

See it if Gay man relishes news of neighbour's Christmas Eve murder.Through the darkness, humanity seeps through. Great transitions between characters

Don't see it if Distinctions between four characters ill-defined. Profuse profanity. Line delivery is excitedly too fast, too low, and garbled. 45 min solo.

Lightning-fast delivery / weird uncomfortable pauses, Welcoming cozy set / good lighting & sound design, Creative character-switching (lamps & stuttering), Moving / intense / angry / edgy / quirky / absorbing, Well-written one-man very sad serio-dark-comedy

See it if you like 1-person shows that have a sprinkle of humor mixed-in w/moments of deep sadness & reflection, + back & forth character transitions.

Don't see it if you're not into 1-person shows. This guy takes you on a roller-coaster ride of emotions, including a lisp & slight physical-impediment. Read more
