“Happiness laser canon, specific, natural powerhouse on stage”
Perrie (Voss) is well cast as the innocent who tries to find her way in this weird world.
…In what is probably the most comic scene in the play[…]insists that Lily explain to her how a television works.
The humour that Voss captures so well is that Lily, like any ordinary person, doesn’t really know how it works.
[… In a parallel scene …], Lily becomes attracted to a young man, who asks Lily to explain what sleep is…] Voss comically shows how difficult it is to describe such a common phenomenon…
Perrie Voss as Jane and Morgan Jones as Mr. Bingley are both enchanting as the happy young couple.
…as Lily, Perrie Voss is the most hopeful presence on stage. You can see the intoxicating excitement of human potential in her. She’s not afraid of the life growing inside her, but she is afraid for it.
“Voss […] perfectly cast as Rosie, particularly during the aforementioned difficult scenes, in which she adeptly relays the emotional wounds inflicted by the men in her life”
“TINY DYNAMITE is an explosively good show…
Voss has the most difficult role as the open-hearted Madeleine, drawn to both men but realizing that being with them makes her both happy and lonely.
You never doubt the sexual tension in her relationship with the men, a tension that hums like the sizzling power lines that are part of the set.
Strong performances, direction and design contribute to Theatre Smash’s outstanding debut production… Director Ashlie Corcoran’s finely nuanced production delves deep."
“[…]a strong cast manage to salvage moments of fine theatre from it all — when they are more concerned with the play’s interior landscape than its exterior. Together, they forge a sense of a burgeoning friendship that afford this production precious grace.” – Tiny Dynamite
