Keara Barnes really did move to Ireland, fall in love, and almost become a stepmom.
She plays all of the roles in her one-woman show with confidence, smoothly embodying each character’s physiology with an arch of the back or a sinking of the shoulders.
But there’s something almost exploitive about this piece, and in part it’s because the antagonist—the mother of Barnes’s almost-stepdaughter—is a cliche. She’s no more nuanced than an evil Jessica Rabbit with a foul mouth and a drinking problem. It’s almost impossible to feel an emotional connection, even when we know we should, because there just aren’t enough layers to grab onto.More
