Alloway Hall (Venue 4), to Saturday
A couple rewind their romance from first meeting to the final grand slam of the door, using tennis terms as metaphors for every stage of the relationship. You know how that goes — they bounce dialogue back and forth, make a love match, assess faults and finally, reach break point.
The Ottawa-based actors are likable, they perform well as a team and the material is entertaining and relatable, if less than challenging.
The sightlines are all good, but if you’re game for people-watching, the seating sweet spot is in the back row, where there’s a clear view of couples exchanging glances in the audience when the material hits close to home.

From the official Fringe Festival program:
A new breakup play from Rideau-Award-Nominated Fringe veterans Black Sheep Theatre.
Somehow, this relationship became a competition. In the end, it's not about the love of the game, or your partner. You know you should quit, or s/he should back down. But neither of you will. Somebody's gotta win, even when nobody can. Sometimes, you've just got to admit: you're only playing for advantage.
