2 for Tea (Life & Depth)
Saskatoon Fringe Festival
First of all, if these two actors are from Sussex (as the Fringe booklet claims), I’ll eat my teacup. It’s a good enough publicity stunt, but…I’ve been to Sussex, and I bet you a star that neither of these actors hail from that city (or indeed, that side of the pond).
2 for Tea is a sweet enough show. There are a few (often repeated) physical gags. The characters are one-note, but not unpleasant. The plot arc…
There isn’t much of a plot arc. It’s pretty much physical gags with a whole lot of audience participation. And I will say, the audience bit is set up really well, and was immensely entertaining. But I’m not here to review audience members. And aside from a particularly clever bit with an imaginary typewriter, the show was merely adequate.
