Jack and Alice lead listless lives, poster children for the stereotype some people hold against millennials. They’re underemployed, unmotivated and suspicious of commitment.

The rom-com, performed by Jenny David and writer Brent Hirose, tallies up the various ways the couple have taken damage. In a world where every sphere — politics, parenting, business, romance — is soaked in deception, why trust anyone?

The two have a clichéd encounter in a coffee shop. Their ensuing relationship fails in every way to explore the possibilities for intrigue and conflict suggested by the premise.

Occasional zingers give testimony to Hirose’s potential as a writer and the actors’ ability to deliver, but long gaps of weak material between those bright lights are just filler.

This show should’ve been so much more.

— Matt TenBruggencate

 

From the Fringe program:
