Cal Wilson in It Could Have Been Me

Adelaide Fringe, Garden of Unearthly Delights, Idolize Spiegeltent

Review by Honey B

At age 43, Cal Wilson has been thinking about some of her life choices. There are certainly some interesting paths Wilson could have taken had she stayed in New Zealand and exploring these alternate lives is a laugh. Wilson is a wonderful character actress and she portrays a range of different characters from Fairy Robot Sparkles who runs children's parties like an army drill sergeant to a sex-obsessed science fiction writer, a drunk, rich widow and a neck-brace wearing feminist. The comedy chameleon's alter-egos are certainly an interesting bunch, but it does take a moment to get your head around who is who. There are certainly moments of brilliance - especially her ending with her inventive props.
