I haven't been to a play in ages. Musical, yes. Classical concerts, yes. But a play? If I remember correctly, the last time I went to a play was during my second co-op work term at Waterloo Maple when one of my co-worker invited me to go to the community theatre to watch his friend perform. Hmm, that must be over 7 years ago.
Based on a glowing review on the Toronto Star, I was very much intrigue by the monologue Pochsy Unplugged. The play is the combined work of the three Pochsy plays, written and performed by Ms. Karen Hines. I enjoyed the play very much and I really don't have much to say that hasn't been much better expressed by various reviewers before. There were lines from the play that really stood out in my memory though.
Pochsy on having kids: "I'm not lifegiving; I'm breathtaking."
On love: "Everything's falling apart; everyone's falling in love"
I love plays that are so darkly hilarious. I found myself laughing hard, at the same time identifying with many of the absurd sentiments and bitter observation of world we live in. It feels good to get back in touch with this side of myself that I haven't visit for so long.
