The Venue itself is quite intimate, as indeed is the theatre, which had considerable appeal.
This led to a relaxed but efficient atmosphere.
The play itself, for me, had an interesting well written angle and the stage layout was well constructed. The cast was mulltitalented and engaged with the audience They did not disappoint.
I would certainly recommended this as an experience.

Beautiful and moving show. A perfect start to the Fringe day. Reminded me of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ in places but with the demons we all have in our human heads out there for the world to see! Excellent music as well that perfectly compliments the action. Talented team and excited to see more from them in the future.

There's no better way to start your Fringe day than with the cast of 'I Am', wending through the depths of their heroine's mind. Encountering the good, bad and entertainingly strange voices we all carry, this is a thoughtful exploration of the psyche, with beautiful original music, enough darkness to challenge and enough absurdism to surprise. Highly recommended!

It's a joy to watch the cast of I Am dive into the space inside your head, animating the inner voices and demons that we all carry with us. Amidst the heightened magical realism there are so many little moments that ring true. It's the sort of new writing that the Fringe is made for.

“It was given to me by someone who loves me”

Stacy Lynn Gould (who we met after the show! So lovely.) delivers a poignant and moving piece of theatre that strikes to the very soul of those fortunate enough to see it. The stage is bare, save for a tee pee-esq structure that dominates upstage and a haunting chorus of voices fills the space...almost as if they are coming from your own head.

It is this theme of holding a lens to your inner demons and getting the chance to confront them head on that creates the back bone of this Lewis Carroll like jaunt into the mind. What would you say to your own self doubt, your own self pity, to all the other forces that tell you what you should be, and what you should want?

Ms. Gould delivers all, with verve and gusto as the writer and director to create fifty minutes of pure escapism ( AND ORIGINAL MUSIC) that ultimately leads you home, to the heart of the characters that you see before you.

The entire cast is superb and takes you on this journey at a maddening pace, but with full commitment and an emotional strength that I have rarely ever seen in a fringe production.

All in all, make this the first show of your day, its central and sets you up for an amazing day at the Fringe.

Imaginative storytelling our our own inner demons. Was a bit hard to follow at first, but then the rhythm and structure became clear. Very touching moment and beautiful singing. High recommend. Centers you back into reality during this crazy world.

Fest (3/5 stars) 29 days ago

Stacy Lynn Gould’s I Am is a short but sweet slice of imaginative magical realism that sees the inner demons of a young woman manifest as a varied cast of strange creatures. The influence of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland is clear as the play’s heroine (played by Amber Lageman)...
