Despite the jumps in timeline, the story is still very easy to follow because the dialogue is so natural and the situations are so recognizable. It takes very strong actors to be able to quickly switch emotions as they play out, in random order, the excitement of first meeting, the happiness of being in love, the mundane or annoying moments in a relationship, anger during arguments, sadness over their breakup and regret with a touch of nostalgia when they run into each other a year later. Accentuating the universality of the story is the choice to have four pairs of actors take turns in different performances. There are two male/female pairings, one pairing with two men and one with two women. One would presume that the exact dialogue might vary a bit with each pairing, but the overall themes remain the same. This amount of variation makes for an exciting show that might be fun to watch more than once. The play is co-written by Fringe Festival veteran T.J.Dawes, who also wrote a play that was adapted into the movie "The F Word" starring Daniel Radcliffe.
I'm glad we were able to enjoy a bit of this year's Fringe Festival by watching a few shows at Best of Fringe. Looking forward to the smaller Next Stage winter Fringe festival in January.
