Ashern’s Patricia Cochrane is a bit like Goldilocks. Her dauntless performance in a trio of dramatic monologues runs hot and cold.

The first richly drawn tale penned by her mother Linda Fletcher would be just right if she dialed back the earnestness a shade. I mean, when a woman born with two heads remarks, “At an early age I realized I was different,” it’s no sin to milk the line for laughs.

When she cranks up the manic energy to 11 in a disjointed rant about the end of the world, it’s hard to decipher the barrage of words. But Cochrane hits just the perfect, warm note in the middle, when Elvis appears to a woman who picks up hitchhikers in purgatory.

— Pat St. Germain

From the official Fringe Festival guide:

A one-woman show featuring the dramatic, yet humorous, monologues “Jane Grey’s Murder of her Second Head,” “Cruisin’ Through Purgatory with Elvis” and “End of the World, Idiots,” which showcase three women’s struggles against prejudice, indifference, doubt, inner conflict and death, as they find a way to accept themselves and find their place with God and the world around them.
