Check Me Out: Edmonton Fringe 2019 review
At turns funny, clever and heartfelt, Check Me Out delves into a quartet of women’s lives and relationships as they unfold in the alley behind Pennywise Family Grocery. The four characters are vividly different from one another and verge on being caricatures, but Trevor Schmidt’s script has enough nuance to give them the feel of reality. (If you’ve worked retail, you’ve probably run into at least one of these women before.) The actors play their roles earnestly and manage to make the audience invested in their stories. While there aren’t any grand plot developments or huge emotional payoffs it’s a funny and satisfying hour of theatre.
