Myth of the Ostrich

 

Review


Despite what the title says, this 70-minute play from Matt Murray is not about the large flightless bird. Instead, we’re introduced to three women, two of which are the mothers of children that are dating. It’s Pam (Jenna Dykes-Busby), the ultra-conservative devout Catholic that shows up unannounced to the house of Holly (Jennifer Spencer), a self-help author who’s way more liberal than the former. The third woman is Cheryl (Jenny McKillop), Holly’s uncensored profanity-laden friend from Newfoundland who provides most—if not all—the facetious jokes to have you laughing out the door. It’s a long play with moments that seemed to drag-on, but the strong performances from all three actors (especially McKillop’s Cheryl) provide a very entertaining fringe show to watch. You’ll probably even leave the show pondering the Holly’s, Pam’s, and Cheryl’s you have encountered in your life. Reviewed by Jasmine Salazar.
