Improv duo and real-life couple Lucy Hill and Daniel Maslany undertake no small task creating an improv show from scratch with only two people.

Thankfully, the young Regina pair are brimming with energy and enthusiasm, even with a small audience.

Unfortunately, all the enthusiasm and energy in the world can’t make improv hit the mark every time. As with any improvisation, there are great moments and not-so-great moments in a show, but these two need more experience to pull off a full 60 minutes on their own.

There are some laughs to be had, but rarely do things crystallize into that point where improv transforms the moment into magic for both performers and audience. With time and experience these two are sure to find that moment.

— Barb Stewart

 

From the Fringe program:

A couple of improvisers from Regina, Saskatchewan involved both romantically and artistically. Their unique brand of improv combines the absurd, the heartfelt, and the ab-felt (from belly laughing). Drawing inspiration from impromptu musical compositions, the 'it's-so-bad-it's-good-again' phenomenon, and each other's thoughts through mind reading, Lucy and Daniel weave together original stories and characters each performance, writing a brand new play before your eyes.
