Narcissist In The Mirror

Narcissist In The Mirror

The show is centred on the main character, conversing with herself and the “Narcissist in the Mirror”. It examines depression, co-dependent relationships and a twenty somethings millennial angst as she realises her life is not as she had assumed it would be, or expected it to be by twenty five.

An excellent choice for theatre goers familiar or unfamiliar with the stage, this is an incredible show, both darkly comic and almost tear jerkingly, intense and sad at times.  It is often hard to convey so powerfully, but given the venue and performer, this is one that Rosie, a relative newcomer managed to achieve with ease; she is able to connect, and play with the audiences and their emotions, almost at will.

Her performance was thoroughly engaging, with the entire theatre locked in her every word, her delivery likening a spoken word poet.  The rhythm and style of the performance takes you on a journey; much further than the dressing room set on the stage.  As a watcher, you become part of the performance, almost as much as the audience members briefly brought to the stage as part of the action.

The standing ovation at the end was wholly deserved and it would be unsurprising if this happens at the end of each performance  – it is suitable and brilliant for millennials, and pre millennials alike.
