Description

Sociologist-turned-detective Caleb Rutherford steps into a hall of mirrors exposing real people through their professions while thinking he has nothing to reveal about himself. A hilarious and thought-provoking tour de force! 'An accomplished actor, Fox knows how to create characters so real in two hours you feel you've known them a thousand times longer' (Chicago Free Press) on Fox's directorial debut. In his new play, 25-year Chicago theatre veteran actor / director / writer Kevin Christopher Fox is an expert raconteur on a mission for your heart. 70 minutes, with feeling.

A hugely entertaining, insightful journey. Kevin Fox portrays a unique angle to a very real problem. He is a master at his craft. We were enthralled from start to end and didn't want to leave. Highly recommend this one.

I loved how Kevin Fox kept gifting us with different twists and turns as the narrative unfolded, beginning with the title and ending in the final scene! It was masterful acting with seamless character transitions. I never felt lost and I loved being taken on this journey. See this show! May it be seen by many in years to come!

Loved it! Funny, poignant, smartly-written and brilliantly performed! Based on the title I had an idea what it might be like, but it was even better than we expected! I've been recommending it to everyone I meet.
