ED2012 Theatre Review: This Is Who I Am! (ISIS Theatre Company, I Speak I Share)

By | Published on Friday 31 August 2012

This Is Who I Am! is a one woman show exploring the innermost thoughts of three seemingly very different characters. Isis Davis sparkles on stage, and although occasionally the script slips into cringe-inducing cliche, her ability saves the show. She is at turns funny and desolate, playing both emotions with equal dexterity, and I felt for each character as I was privy to their feelings, fears and inhibitions. We learn about a cancer patient, Chelsea from Essex, and a young boy with a disturbed past. Davis switches between roles with ease, confirming just how talented she is. If you want to see new writing at its best, look out for this show.

theSpace on the Mile, 3-10 Aug (not 5), 10.10pm.
