A serio-comedy about dating, frigidity, and trauma recovery. After a life-changing experience shatters a young woman's world, she must examine how her past has shaped her views on sex, sexuality, and relationships. Playing over 35 characters, Shattered takes a raw and hilarious look at one individual picking up the broken pieces of herself and putting them back together again. What audiences are saying: 'This is not only good theater, it's also important theater. Bravo!' 'Just go. She is a comedic and emotional genius.' 'Breathtakingly honest and powerful performance, both hilarious and moving.'

In her seventy minutes (give or take) emoting on stage, it’s Diana all the way, playing against her 35+ characters that speak within her mind. These supporting players are her inner voices that the audience can hear, while Diana shows in a very candid and honest (if not brave) method that she will remain the last person standing!

Told through 35 characters, which included many of the emotions that haunt most of us, this show made its mark and earned the distinction of being among our favorite shows of HFF 17. It was funny, sad, heart-wrenching and hopeful, and left us with a true sense of purpose to becoming the person we were meant to be. Kudos to Ms. Varco for a true Fringe work of art.

I truly cannot say enough positive things to accurately express my awe of this piece. It is a MUST SEE for Fringe! Do not hesitate! Buy your tickets now! This show is in a word; Amazing. Simply put, it's one of the best shows I've seen at Fringe and one of the greatest examples of solo performance I've ever seen! Diana is so powerful in her performance that I was riveted from the start. Her ability to clearly define each of her characters is outstanding and I marveled at her specificity with each one. They are all fully developed characters and she moves effortlessly from one into the other. Her story is heartbreaking and honest, yet powerful and uplifting. She deftly leads her audience through the journey with her and ultimately delivers such an empowered ending that everyone leaps to their feet in awe. I cannot say enough about this piece. See it!
