Review: A Bicycle Built for Two (3.5 Stars)

A Bicycle Built for Two (Theatre of the Beat)

Winnipeg Fringe Festival

3.5 Stars


Theatre of the Beat’s four-hander, “A Bicycle Built for Two,” explores couples’ relationships at various stages, and the communication (or lack thereof) in their lives.

It is a solid, well-written show, with clever dialogue, adept character changes and an actual vintage tandem bike onstage.  The actors work well together, and the opening night went off without a hitch.

At times, the acting seemed to lack authenticity and came across as theatre school “acting” – As a result, some of the characterizations lacked emotional honesty.  However, this will be solved with experience and time.

Solid Fringe fare with a positive message.
