                    My first “must see” of this year’s Fringe.
                    When you look at someone you think you know, what do you see? Many of us do a great job of masking our hopes, heartaches, & dreams.
                    The play is well-written: clever, wry, & heartfelt. Ottawa’s Tim C. Murphy- the playwright & star- has simply nailed it. One of the best performances I’ve seen in many years of Fringe- watching.

                    A quintessentially Canadian drama/comedy that covers a wide variety of heavy topics, ranging from isolation, mental health, addiction, and the meaning of happiness. The play is centered on a set of employees at a bar, and is told from multiple perspectives. Tim C. Murphy embodies all of the roles he plays, and his ability to switch between these characters is very impressive. While the themes of the show may seem dark, the end product is incredibly heartfelt, warm, and carries a positive and valuable lesson. A keen sense of humour elevates this from the depths of melancholic emotions which fill each character. All of the jokes land well, and are saved from feeling repetitive by Murphy’s great performance as a range of characters. Small details such as a hat, an apron, and dialect result in every character feeling completely unique, revealing their personal perspective, despite the fact that they’re all portrayed by one man. This play also features one of the most creative uses of a fourth wall break, flawlessly pulling the audience into the play without singling anyone out or sacrificing believability. A lovely show with an important message, masterfully crafted and perfect for a Canadian Fringe audience.
                    4.5/5
