Raw follows a woman’s journey of self-discovery as she ventures forth from her monotonous everyday life in search of something more. We follow her as she experiments with different lifestyles, trying to figure out if there is something more fulfilling or at least more exciting. Pretty songs sung by our heroine and her backing group (who occasionally double as actors and props) punctuate the one-woman show. Though the overall tone is somewhat more sombre, the performance is punctuated by genuinely funny moments that are all the better for their infrequency. It is sincere and filled with genuine emotion. Though the show sometimes feels overly scripted for its casual telling, the audience mostly feels they are being treated to an elaborate story over drinks. The small stage is littered with props to add effect, from a laptop to vitamin C tablets. These are used throughout adding a third dimension to what otherwise could be a two dimensional story.The music is pretty and enjoyable, adding depth to the individual scenes and pushing the performance on. Don’t expect an emotional epiphany accompanied by belted vocals; it isn’t that sort of show. Instead simple and authentic are better used to describe this production. Devoid of glitz and glamour Raw is funny and honest, a performance that captures the heart.
