Theatre touches the soul and engages the imagination. Film asks the questions we dare not speak aloud, challenging us to strive for something more.
Garbage by Megan Bandelt
Port Fringe 2016
"...a frank, colorfully theatrical one-woman show, chronicles a journey through depression. The NYC-based Bandelt makes excellent use of the small space, stringing a triangle of cords to which she clips drawings, photos, and – in especially nice bits of stagecraft – a single light bulb. Rich in props – vodka bottles, mementos in a box – and off-beat sound design, Garbageengagingly paces Megan’s chronology. Bandelt has endearing candor, she does a fine job calibrating Megan’s ages (her 13-year-old’s bubbliness becomes a 15-year-old’s stricken restraint) and the script is riddled with empathy-arousing surprises."
