Hollywood Fringe 2023: Keeper @ The Actors Company – Review

Get on the bus—we’re going to summer camp! During this emotional and energetic solo show, the audience is transported back to a simpler time of trust-falls, chow time, and visits to the medical tent…but some wounds are too deep for a camp nurse to heal. Michelle Murphy embodies her younger self with exuberance and a wide-eyed innocence to reveal how an early rejection from a loved one left her fraught with questions of self-worth. From being hunted by the most vicious predator (other 13-year-old girls) to coping with (and without) food, Murphy shares how she broke through to discover why she is, in fact, a keeper. Keeper has a powerful message for everyone. Once the past is truly in the past, once the wounds are no longer fresh, without the shame and the lies..who are you? Are you willing to find out? Murphy holds nothing back in this riveting and raw journey. Keeper is written and performed by Michelle Murphy, directed by Juliette Jeffers. Content Warning: Self-Harm, Strong language Taken from the website.
