I saw this show yesterday, not many in the audience, why I don't know!?? A brilliant performance from an amazing natural actress. Powerful, poignant, fragile, sad & funny all in one hour? Thank you, I loved it!!

I enjoyed the twists in this story, and how the character gradually revealed her situation . Emotional ending and great , although quite brief, support from the other cast members.

Entering the Attic in the Gilded Balloon Rose Theatre, the stage looks like a typical messy teenager’s room, and when the eponymous Louise rises from her sitting position, she appears to fit that mould precisely. As the hour progresses however, … Read More ...
