Katherine Glover tells interesting stories; they’re just not that cynical.
In her 60 minute one-woman show A Cynic Tells Love Stories, Minnesota native Katherine Glover gives us some very personal stories about her love life. Broken into a number of distinct stories, Glover provides glimpses into the different “chapters” of her life including her time in South America with her Latin lover as the hopeless romantic, her slutty phase on campus and even her short marriage to a man with trust issues.
Glover is an accomplished story-teller, easily drawing us into her life and her stories and at times one almost gets the feeling she is simply unloading on a group of friends as a cheap alternative to therapy.
Glover is at her best when she is just talking, allowing her words to do the work. I found myself wishing she had simply sat down on her stool (or perhaps a couch) and told her stories rather than attempting to add movement or to become some of her characters.
Despite a lack of cynicism, Glover makes up for it with some humourous and thoughtful personal stories about life and love.
