JJ Pyle finds herself accidentally, unfortunately, home for Christmas and stuck in this little truck with her dad in Indiana, where everything is surrounded by cornfields. In an unconscious search for acceptance and emancipation, a tale is told through their conversation and memories revealing criminal activity, dysfunctional family cycles, heartbreak and hope (and, if we're honest, obsession and lust)… a coming of (middle) age story. ' absolute master of storytelling. Sneaky even... we are not only charmed and entranced, but we also understand a little more about ourselves...' (

JJ Pyle is an excellent storyteller and wonderful writer. Her deeply personal story is funny and relatable. If you’ve ever loved (and lost) you should see this show! Hundreds of women have left me— so I commiserated and loved this show!

This is an excellent show. So moving to share JJ's story of relationship ups and downs The intertwining of her dad's commentary on his life works so well and gives us extra insight into her likely early life experiences and expectations of men. The script is tight, funny, well-paced and the acting is superb. Well worth a watch,

Loved this, the portrayal of multiple characters was superb - and very funny. A journey through dysfunction with kid gloves, brilliantly performed. One of my favourites.

Saw this by chance and really enjoyed it
. . Very clever use of props and the soundtrack where she jumps across multiple characters and scenes at a breakneck speed.
Hope the word gets out and more people see it.

We met JJ outside the venue and had a chat, she gave us a flyer and we decided to go see her show. Best decision made that day!
Her performance is so good: she embodies every character in the show realistically, and the props are cleverly used and make you nostalgic for a time and a place in your own past, both emotionally and physically.
10 out of 10 would recommend!
P.S. thank you for the kindness and for remembering us.

This was a very professional one-woman show complete with props, video, and sound effects. It is a serious contemplation of a woman’s relationship with her dysfunctional father and how that affected her relationships with men. Some funny moments too!

Examines the painful reality of when you can’t seem to keep up with everyone - or worse, when you keep fucking it all up. The use of tech and the suitcase was clever and I enjoyed the relationship with her father. Very relatable.
