Hey guys! My name is Mona Dwedar. I’m an Egyptian-Filipino, born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. If my friends would describe me, the first thing they would mention is my child-at-heart personality. They have compared me to having the same energy, excitement, and curiosity as a child. From cartoons to toys, there’s this wonderfully overwhelming feeling of joy and nostalgia. Aside from that, I’m also an energetic, spontaneous, adventurous person who loves all things fun, such as travel, music, art, film, and of course theater. I love new experiences, and I can’t wait to share them with you!
I walked away wishing I saw more people of color in the media. Maybe we wouldn’t feel so lost or alone. We wouldn’t feel like we had to lose a part of ourselves to be seen or heard. We’d be accepted because, at the end of the day : we’re all human and that’s all that matters.
They loved each other, stuck together, and as cliche as it may sound, I think that's what helped all of them through. That idea that they were never going to be alone and that they were all screwed up, but all screwed up together.
It started off fine. I saw there were some changes, but whatever, that's bound to happen. Nothing too major. You can't win 'em all. Then...
They touched me. I’ve been to a ton of immersive shows, and this one takes the cake for making me unbelievably uncomfortable, but surprisingly, I grew to like it.
Now, the reason for the show’s awesomeness. One word y’all. Pepe. I get that I’m bias, having a tiny crush and all, but from the moment the show started to the walk home, only one thing stuck with me: Pepe.
You know. It’s funny. Before seeing the show, I had this whole article planned out. Write about the fun music that made you want to dance.
An average girl, Agnes, loses her family in a car crash. In an attempt to better understand her sister, Tilly, she embarks on an adventure into the Dungeons and Dragons game her sister created.
Before the performance, I was fine. Happy even. I was getting to see yet another show with my best friend. We were posting snapchat stories. We got lost, had an adventure, and even met amazing people that helped us on our way. I was fine.
Then, the performance started, and my mood completely changed.
I mean, this show was pretty twisted, so I probably am too because I LOVED that. So much so, that I called my best friend shortly after to hear her reaction to the story line. The stories this guy writes are some dark shit, so here are a couple that caught my attention.
I went to this show after a long day but I was intrigued. I met up with my friend Mona and boyfriend Anthony and we went into the theater together. We were about to see a show and I was excited! The only thing... this show was far from happy. It was quite dark to be honest.
