Review On The Woman Is Perfected

Shawn Alff


Perfection is an impossibility. It's an ideal to be pursued. This play explores the dramatic ends we reach when we become obsessed with that which can not last. The audience is placed in the headspace of a woman in her late 20s who is struggling with her identity while going to increasingly drastic ends to stave off her physical decline. Viewers come away with a renewed understanding and empathy, not only for those suffering with body dysmorphia, but also for anyone searching for a way to feel validation in a world increasingly preoccupied with the superficial.
