Fools for Love
Friends contemplating being lovers is a dreary rom-com convention, but it gets pumped full of life and inventive, knee-slapping comedy by Rocket and Sheshells in this riotous clown show.
Next-door neighbours Rocket and Sheshells are hitting the classifieds looking for mates, but make do with each other for outings that include going to a movie they can agree on (Pride and Prejudice 2: Extreme Prejudice), going on a picnic and venturing into the basement.
Minimal props — two dolls, two chairs, two flashlights, and a box of Timbits — augment some extraordinary physical comedy from this Edmonton troupe. It’s charming but a little rude: Just because there are red noses doesn’t mean you should take the little ones. But mature audiences are guaranteed immature, silly laughs.
— Randall King
From the Fringe program:
One adrenaline-pumped night, two best friends discover they have been overlooking what's right under their noses. But can friendship survive a romance?
