Reviewed by:  John SmytheNik SmytheLiza KireAlison Embleton;

Based on a true story, this one woman play follows Freya Desmarais on her journey to rock bottom and back. This 'mental' comedy is coloured by life lessons that apply to anyone who has ever felt unsure of themselves (hint: everybody. So come, 'cause it's really good and stuff.)
