James and Jamesy in the Dark – 4 Stars

James and Jamesy in the Dark

Edmonton Fringe Festival

4 Stars

This is an innovative and enjoyable physical comedy, which takes place with the theatre entirely in the dark (with Pixar-style lamp illumination, and white face paint).


I don’t want to describe too much, because the unexpectedness of it all is one of the delights of this piece of theatre.  However, I will note that both the actors are highly skilled, completely committed to the their characters, and can convey clear emotions with the simplest of physical gestures.


Of all the James and Jamesy offerings (there have been three thus far at this Fringe), ‘In the Dark’ is, for me, the most enjoyable.  Family-friendly and energy-infused, this is one that should not be missed.
