This two-handed dramatic comedy, penned by Winnipegger Rick Caslake, flubs an interesting premise.

Local actors Kevin Anderson and Lorraine James play former lovebirds who make dinner together 30 years after their relationship has ended. They now have nothing in common — he is an MBA who loves his beef and she is a civil servant obsessed with environmentalism.

That’s pretty much it. In 55 minutes, Caslake gives us no revelations of note about their pasts and supplies no reason why they should make a fresh start. The two actors are competent amateurs, but director Barbara Best’s casting is dubious: James looks like she would have been in elementary school 30 years ago.

The virtue of the production is its elaborate kitchen set. They could recycle it for a TV cooking show.

— Morley Walker

From the official Fringe Festival guide:

In this age of Blue Box recycling, greenhouse gas reduction and reusing everything from eggshells for fertilizer, to wine corks for fishing floats - what about an old relationship? Don't some things belong in a landfill?
