The Divine Madness of Isabella

How long can you walk the line between genius and insanity?

“Gough recounts this epic story with disarming ease, robust humor and efficiency, and skillfully mimics over twenty characters. She also employs a dazzlingly attractive assortment of masks and puppets throughout.”
– LA Weekly

“Gough is wonderful throughout, keeping a frenetic, yet balanced, pace, all the while juggling the numerous props and character changes.”
– LA Theatre Review

“There is an appreciable amount of creativity and innovation that makes this more than the average one-person show.”
