Incorporating music, multimedia, humor, a touch of mythology, and embodying over twenty characters, Margaret whimsically puts her psyche on stage to explore her struggle with self-acceptance and her experience of two mental breakdowns. Margaret explores not only what outside influences molded her personality when she was growing up and as an adult, but also confronts two internal voices, representing the competing compulsions of artistry (Puella) and perfectionism (Miss Perfect). Realizing in the end that what she has been taught her whole life was right, doesn't work for her.

"Margaret's positive personality shines through every moment of her story, giving us hope that everything will be all right, even through the darkest moments of her past. Even when she hits rock bottom, and dances dangerously close to the edge of that metaphoric cliff, she always figures out a way to revive her life and resurface to victory. This is a beautiful story of a woman finding her truth within by pushing herself to the limits of her comfort zone and beyond. She is an inspiration."

"This one-person show was intelligent and life-affirming. Margaret Mendenhall bravely tells her story with courage and humor, but sitting there listening to her recount her inner battles, one realizes we all are facing the same spiritual tug-of-war, and we're all on the edge of the cliff. But seeing shows like this reminds us we are not alone on that cliff."
