No Moral Compass

 

Review


Trish Parry’s no holds barred comedy biographic, No Moral Compass, quickly transitions through more phases than the narrator herself. Born into a military family, and at first glance, into a seemingly normal Christian conservative household. Patricia (Trish) Parry, or Pat as she temporarily rebranded herself in her junior year of high school, recounts a fast paced tale of sex, drugs, and straight-to-VHS films. The story begins in Japan where we learn of cherry blossom trees, beauty pageants, and one pissed off mathematician mother. Parry owns the stage, and delivers her story with embarrassing pictures of her as a child for visual aid. Trish continues to give a charming performance as she recounts her family's many moves throughout the United States. As Trish recalls discovering her father's meticulously organized porno tapes, to taking her own virginity, Parry often delivers a raunchy performance to the audience. As Trish weaves through the years, we are told of her hilariously complicated relationship with her father, her accidental admission into a therapy group for troubled teens, and that time when she was mistaken as her dad’s goth hooker. Trish delivers a truly authentic experience. She’s simply enjoyable to watch, but the show does touch on many taboos, and is not for everyone. Simply put, the show is a raunchy rollercoaster ride of nostalgia. You won’t want to miss this one. Reviewed by Josh Winfield.

    Such a fun storytelling experience. While it has serious moments it’s also very funny. Trish Perry was a delight. Thanks for a great performance!

    You’ll leave feeling better about your own childhood. At times it’s like being slapped in the head. Good intimate venue show. The Journal reviewer didn’t get it.
