In what’s described as a "collective creative piece" written by the company, six young adults meander their way through the minefield that is love in this series of linked vignettes. And even if they don’t "get love," they clearly "get themselves."

While they don’t take themselves too seriously, they do communicate the frustration, confusion and outright stupidity of young love. Younger adults will recognize their own lives, and older adults will be reminded why they never want to go through that again. Either way, everybody laughs out loud.

Snappy dialogue with the ring of truth, and a well-paced story is moved along by quick comedic timing of this Winnipeg company.

The couple with the best chemistry? Hope and Alex, the sister known as the World’s Worst Girlfriend and her brother, the World of Warcraft geek, whose sibling squabbling is right on the money. The scene where Alex tries to teach Hope how to play WoW is worth the price of admission all by itself.

—Wendy Burke
 

From the official Fringe program:

Love…between a man and his wife…the wife and the milkman…the milkman and his gorilla…the gorilla and his Precious Moments figurines.
