Amazing performance, Edgy, Challenging, Intelligent, Absorbing
See it if You want to see a seamless & engaging tour de force by Fraser, fully on, committed & inventive, to the smallest gesture, & in total control.
Don't see it if You have no patience, don't like monologues, solo plays or the dark — literal or figurative.
Also Alison Fraser delivers a quiet, subtle and thoroughly engaging tour de force here, a virtual master class on risk, going all in, fully inhabiting a role and commanding attention for the duration of this difficult script.
Seated in the dark for its 90 minute length, Fraser's every small gesture, curl of toe, shift of weight has meaning and propels the narrative action, and she manages to totally inhabit several characters, each distinctly etched by gesture and small adjustments of voice. Even the voice of her main character is layered with depth and hint of a varied past. It's a remarkable performance that carries, makes plausible and almost pulls off the end, the weakest part of the evening, and the script.
