COMMENTS about SPARK STORY:
This is my life story!
– audience member, Island Theatre production, Bainbridge Performing Arts
Your story reminded me of what I want most – to be at home, in me.
– Isabel, Argentina
I can relate to all your characters – the good girl, the workaholic, the rebel, and still wanting to keep your heart. Even from the beginning I started to cry, with the little girl. It’s very powerful.
– Milena, Scotland
We can all understand this. I want my daughter and my mother to see it.
– C. Hille, Seattle
Your performance was a joy to watch, to see you, hear you, feel you. You spoke about all of us… I heard the sound of my soul.
– Patricia, Argentina
It’s absolutely brilliant! We are not so unique as we all think.
– Vickie Dodd, Sacred Sound Works, Washington
I really appreciated all the layers that you put on…every one of us resonates with that, and the unwinding. It’s a beautiful, beautiful thing.
– – M. Hoven, New Mexico
It was very moving. Coming from a performing background, and having seen a lot of polished work that doesn’t always move you… when it’s real, it’s very palpable. Thank you.
– Joule L’adara, New York
