A surreal portrayal of a Welsh girl who has moved to Edinburgh. This one woman play is about being alone and wishing that every day events would hurry up and lead to some kind of spectacular love, which will fulfill all that is wrong with life. The duration of the performance is filled with mime and monologue but does also contain sound effects too. It touches upon the expected trials of moving somewhere new, like jumping through hoops to impress new employers or dodging bullets when being interrogated but new people. Having loved ones, back in Wales, and without a healthy support network in Edinburgh, desperation begins to takes hold. The character shows a deterioration of mental health as she alludes happiness and success to her mother over telephone conversations; while in reality she is enveloped in social isolation, causing her to seek relationships in rather unusual ways. Some say when life throws you lemons, make lemonade…However, you may never look at a lemon the same way again after you have seen this. THREE STARS
