“When a woman is asked a life-altering question hundreds of frantic thoughts go through her head, and she will need all the advice she can get to make up her mind.”
From press release:
Decisions are hard, and the clock is ticking. When a woman is asked a life-altering question hundreds of frantic thoughts go through her head, and she will need all the advice she can get to make up her mind. (in)decision is a fun and quirky one-woman show you will not want to miss at this year’s Toronto Fringe Festival. Created by Tamlynn Bryson and Kyle Kimmerly, two acting graduates from the University of Windsor, (in)decision had its Fringe debut at the 2015 Ottawa Fringe Festival where Bryson brought home the Emerging Artist Award for her performance. It also appeared in the 2016 Windsor-Walkerville Fringe Festival in May, where Tamlynn Bryson won the Spirit of Fringe award.
(in)decision is set in the mind of Tess, and begins just after she has received a marriage proposal. Caught between whether to say yes or no, Tess holds an impromptu meeting inside her head in the 10 seconds before she answers her boyfriend. She frantically explores any decision-making device she has at hand, runs through every possible scenario that could ensue, and opens the door for the audience members to have their unique opinions heard about the life-changing decision she is about to make.
(in)decision has been praised by reviewers and peers alike for its clever writing, sense of humour, and outstanding performance. “Majestic comic timing” (Allan Mackey, Onstage Ottawa), “Not a show to be missed” (Arielle Follett, Apartment 613), “Rides the cliff of audience interaction to poignant and hilarious heights” (Wes Babcock, New Ottawa Critics), “Shameless humour and surprising poignancy” (Hani Yassine, The Lance).
