Morgan Brayton is a force. One moment she’ll kick you in the gut, the next she’s making you “auh” at the cuteness of it all.
Her show Raccoonery!, a series of comedic monologues brings onto the Performance Works stage a cast of characters that you wish wouldn’t leave once the lights fade. Whether it’s the blonde dreaded 20 something telling her roommates that she won’t be paying their oppressive rent because she discovered that she’s 1/100th native, or the singed moth hopelessly in love with a flame or the 7 year old who endures the hardship of the ice cream truck turning the corner, Brayton has crafted each character with details only a natural comedic could unearth.
The performance is of the same nuanced and brilliant quality; her energy up there is palpable. And then to add to it all the music produced for the show played between each monologue was amazing! Composed by Brayton’s and Laura Lee Schultz they were just another added touch to the whole wonderful experience.
If you’re not audibly laughing while at Raccoonery! then you’re smiling and if you’re not smiling then you should seek medical attention.
Raccoonery is on as part of this year's Fringe. For more information forage here.
