Peach Review

By Ezekiel McAdams

                Peach is a dramedy, a one woman show starring the titular, Peach, that is a play dripping with fun quirky heart.

                Written and directed by Danielle Roy, Peach is about the neurotic adventures of a woman named Peach played by Alex Hartshorn trying to skate through the tightrope life that is relationships.

                The play is smart, the dialogue is memorable, snappy infused with a quirkiness and neurotic edge that comes from both Roy's writing but also Hartshorn marvelous performances  that is so neurotically charming that you can't help but be endured by her misadventures.

                Hartshorn is able to weave through the dialogue and her physical energy to create a character and performance that not is memorable but feels real and is honestly one of Hartshorn's best performances she's ever given.

                Roy's directing is fast paced as the show moves quickly only slowing down for dramatic moments  but the play has such a manic frenzy to  it that is not really noticeable. Roy is able to employ certain devices such as mannequins and audio samples to full effect to immerse the audience in Peach's mindset.

                Peach is funny, it is touching , the dialogue is razor sharp but at the end it's a show with a big gooey quirky heart  dripping with a neurosis that's infectious.

Peach can be seen at Victoria School Upstairs.
