*You don't have to do yoga*

Despite some mixed messages it is not compulsory to do yoga. About 6-7 people are on stage, everyone is invited to take a mat on arrival. The rest are seating and no aerobic exercise required aside from optional screaming.

Very funny piece about the American dream and its impracticality for women, and when there happens to be a global pandemic on too.

Funny, sad, touching, and a bit alarming all in turn. Very brave to get the audience to participate - great idea, very novel.

Excellent show, funny, sad and some impressive planking from members of the audience.
Nice way to start your day.

What a fantastic show! You can participate if you want in full yoga session, but that’s just a small part of a fantastic performance by Jillian. Well worth seeing!!!

Lia Romeo’s writing comically explores the conflict between the outwardly calm philosophy of its subject and the angst-ridden lives of some of its devotees.

Every moment is rooted in honesty, and the collective empathy that results for this troubled soul by play’s end is well-earned.
