Welcome to Imi’s (Bebe Cave) Halloween Vlog, and it’s all in regards to the wake of Roger, Imi’s beloved canine who has sadly handed. It doesn’t assist the wake occurs to be on the yr anniversary of her dad’s suicide., All a bit a lot actually and mourning each her dad and Roger you surprise if Imi is as okay as she’s saying to all these viewers? 

Andrew Exeter’s set instantly offers us the homely really feel that will befit a lady in her room about to do a stay video, a vibrant colored backdrop with cabinets, home windows, photographs of the canine, the lot … and the ashes of Roger taking centre stage. As she begins to ramble via her video the voices of each her dad (James Cardigan) and Grandad (Richard Hope) play over in her head in varied scenes, it then shortly turns into a three-way dialog together with her, the viewers and the voices in her head. 
Bebe Cave deserves heaps of reward, from begin to end she’s energetic and provides every little thing on this one-woman present. Humorous one-liners continually preserve our consideration but are predictable. The writing sometimes drags and does not ship the meant shock in the direction of the climax of the present. 


The present does have its endearing and heartfelt moments for positive, it’s an sincere look into psychological well being and the struggles of dealing with it alone. We really feel for Imi and her apparent cry for assist. It’s written with a delicacy and intimacy from Lewis Cornay that showcases its strengths greater than its weaknesses.

Combining the writing together with ingenious and intelligent use of such an intimate area from director Jane Moriaty, you could have a present that pulls on the heartstrings however simply misses packing that knockout punch.
