REVIEW:

"The tone of the festival becomes a bit lighter in the very clever SWITCH!, by Karen Chilton, who also stars in it. Chilton plays Joan, a therapist whose day is thrown for a loop when her new client turns out to be her former friend Guy (Maurice McRae), who is also a therapist. The two have not seen each other since their mutual friend Kat committed suicide. While they at first balk at the unexpected reunion, Guy is distraught enough to stay and attempt to get the help that he needs. Chilton shows great skill here, both as a performer and as a playwright, with a script that manages to show both compelling drama and witty dialogue. Chilton and McRae have great chemistry as performers, and they play off of each other well.
