Relationships can be so triggering . . .

After years of chasing unavailable women, Julie may have found her ideal girlfriend. She isn't afraid to break all the rules, prefers to make art rather than watch Netflix on the couch and thinks Julie's a creative genius. Best of all, she’s really into Julie. The only trouble is they can’t agree on one thing - that Julie is the problem.

There is true integrity in the story’s exploration of love and loss that will resonate with many. This is due in no small part to Julie’s ability to make you feel like your talking to an old friend. The poetic rhythm and ease in which she tells the story with only the addition of two stools and lighting transport you to the situations she describes.

Her use of body language to embody the characters, evoke an emotion and create a situation is a real testament to Julie’s talent for storytelling.

Borderline A**hole is a time capsule of an emotional journey exploring mental health, grief and relationships. Do not miss the opportunity to see this five-star performance.

The writing is witty and poignant. When she talks about her mother you feel the genuine affection emanating from her. Her escapades with the dating coach are hilarious and her experiences in group therapy make for plenty of comedic moments. She has paced this well. It coasts along running the gamut of emotion. Throughout, Gieseke is engaging and genuine ... extremely compelling ... endearing and warm, this doesn’t feel like an hour and when it ends you will find yourself wanting to know more.
