HFF Review: Confessions of the World’s Worst Missionary
I really enjoyed myself at this show. Lina does show us the world of, well, well-off white girls learning about the problems of Africa and dealing with it: And that’s not bad. It’s the sort of theme I’ve thought about as for myself, and what can I do for the world. It’s what I’ve thought about when my priest says we have it so well here in L.A. with our designer bags- and I enjoyed that great suitcase Lina used as a prop! There’s such an imbalance in the world- and what can we do about it?
We try to be loving, and Lina seems to have done a great job with that. Even though she can’t fix everything, and she doesn’t have the answers, she’s making the world a better place. And now, she is using the medium of theatre to make the world a better place, by healing the audience and making us more aware of the world around us. Just what theatre should be doing. Kudos to you, Lina. I enjoyed seeing the world from your perspective, and I laughed a LOT at your satire, and I even got a little teary at the end. Thanks for your show!
