Lyle Morris and Toni Reimer are David and Katie, a couple who manage to turn a minor fight into a permanent breakup. As we join them the morning after the fight, imbibing their morning brew, the situation, and their behaviour, spirals further downward.

Morris and Reimer are both a treat as these world-class sparring partners and director Darcy Fehr keeps the pace brisk and sharp. The problem is, when we’re faced with characters so bent on being awful to one another, it’s difficult to really care what happens to their relationship. The brief glimpses we’re given of their humanity aren’t enough to sustain any genuine concern. We need a bit more from David and Katie than their ultra-insults to earn any empathy.

— Barb Stewart

From the Fringe program:

Live-in couple David and Katie turn an overnight squabble into something that isn't good until the last drop. A bold, dark-roasted comedy.

Directed by Darcy Fehr and starring Lyle Morris and Toni Reimer.
