Stage Play; Quarter Life Crisis

Stage Play; Quarter Life Crisis


What began with almost empty hall swelled with people as Yolanda Mercy thrilled people with one liners and some spoken word poetry in her one-man stage play 'Quarter Life Crisis'.

The thing that was unique about her play was a back drop behind her on which phone calls and text conversations with family members and potential lovers of her character

'Alice' was displayed. Then she engaged her audience from time to time; at some point she dragged out a man from the seat and made him her ad hoc boyfriend, rewarding him with a pack of complimentary gifts afterwards. The audience laughed and sighed and snapped their fingers as they navigated the Quarter life crisis, a phenomenon millenials could relate to - along with 'Alice'. It ended in applause and the crowd dispersed.
