Hey there, time traveller!

Music, melodrama and physical mayhem propel this high-energy comedy from Vancouver’s Peter Carlone and Chris Wilson to absurd heights.
But it’s controlled chaos, as madcap roommates Peter and Chris try to come to terms with their need to pay rent and their desire to cling to youthful dreams of theatrical success. Chris’s efforts to sabotage Peter’s interview for a coffee-shop job lead to impromptu veterinary surgery, an action-packed chase scene and a near-death experience involving a plastic six-pack ring — along with a few punchy dance numbers and an awkward nocturnal admission.
Deftly constructed, fast and furiously funny.
— Pat St. Germain
