Like many Millennials, I love anything with self-deprecating humor, a little awkwardness and something that makes me feel less alone about struggling to grow up. Luckily Leaving The Nest features all of the above.
Leaving The Nest is a one-man show created by Daniel Dosek and Tremayne Gordon. It tells the story of Andrew and his experience of moving out of home and trying to make it into the ‘real world’ for the first time.
With nothing but a suitcase, a microphone and a whole lot of personality actor Tremayne Gordon takes you along on Andrews journey as if you were just chatting with a friend.
The show really grasps the overwhelming feeling of entering a new phase of life and just how it can fail to meet the expectation. But, it does so in a tone that is lined with lightheartedness and jokes.
At some points, the storyline felt a little rushed and jumbled but Tremayne kept the audience engaged with his knack for storytelling.
Leaving The Nest resonated with me personally as it’s a phase of life many my age face. Although audiences of all ages will be able to relate to Andrew’s awkwardness and his struggle to find his sense of self.
I laughed, smiled and came to the conclusion to never leave home.
