Circumference

Touching one-woman play tackles body image

by

comment

A tale of a woman’s struggle with body image, Circumference is a dynamite one-woman play written by and starring Amy Salloway. A series of monologues strung together, there’s more content in this play than any other this reviewer has seen combined. That explains the notebook that Salloway references throughout the hour-long performance to keep herself on track and pace fast. Afterwards she tells the audience that it’s a work in progress, and that she’s constantly rewriting and revising the text. Regardless of the use of the notebook to keep her place, Salloway gives a dead-on performance of a woman whose body shape is at odds against her love life, ability to make friends in school, and her gym teacher. Funny and touching, Circumference is what a fringe festival play should be. Seen on Sept. 8
