Flutter Bird



I applaud anyone who has the will and boldness to share highly-detailed parts of their childhood with a Fringe audience. Maryclare McCauley's performance is sweet, in a kind of coddling, motherly, fashion which does work, due to the fact that she is telling the story of her relationship with her songbird mother. Her mother, who has her fourth child on the way, turns into an all too common 1970s amphetamine baby. It was a time when doctors prescribed drugs like Valium and Dexedrine to stay at home moms and the women became dependant on "mommy's little helpers." McCauley's performances as her mother, siblings, and father are suitable, however, there are certain scenes that drag on and leave the viewer feeling somewhat fatigued. There's almost too much content. It's a story about motherhood and the prescription drug scare, but perhaps it should have stuck with just one topic. – Stephan Boissonneault
