Fabulous performance! Debra Ehrhardt's solo show is incredible; her storytelling, her physicality, her acting - just superb! I would recommend this show to everyone. And I do hope it is adapted to the screen. Such an incredible story!

Fantastic, Great!! One woman show indeed. She made you live the part she was playing. This was my third visit, bringing someone new each time. And they loved it too. Will be attending the July showing also.
