This hilariously rocky romance follows a familiar trajectory. When Ernest and Ernestine vow their love will last forever, we smell blood. And their fate is sealed when they move into a tiny “perfect” basement apartment.

But the 75-minute Winnipeg comedy, directed by Debbie Patterson, doesn’t take the easy way out. The lovers are in for a battle royal and their audience is in for a treat.

Colin D. Connor is a laugh-riot as Ernest — a gangly neatnik whose orgasmic breakfast ritual is a work of comedic art. And his slobbish Ernestine, Allisa Watson, matches him blow for blow as their simmering rage builds to explosive levels.

Screamingly funny, this is an all-too-true love story for the ages.

— Pat St. Germain

From the Fringe program:

Is love always patient and kind? Or is it a black hole from which you may never escape? The world's most adorkable couple fall in love and just keep on falling. It's funny because it's oh-so-painfully true.

"…a wildly hilarious and painfully truthful caricature of human nature." - Toronto Star
