You Belong Here: Edmonton Fringe 2019 review

Fans of Brooklyn-based Martin Dockery will not be disappointed with his entry at this year’s Fringe. You Belong Here follows suit with Dockery’s signature brand of storytelling: rambling and digressive, delving into the humour of mundane details, punctuated by the occasional manic outburst. The circular style can start to feel a bit tedious at points – something Dockery is keenly aware of, addresses directly, and is indeed the whole point of the thing. Aside from a couple of slightly colourful jokes the material is quite safe; the finale is sweet and satisfying.
