4 short comedies
played in a tour-de-force by the same 2 actors
"This bittersweet quick-change comedy is streaked with pathos and is effortlessly charming, with each character sketched with
verve and skill"
(Sydney Morning Herald)
"Warm, funny and endearing"
"Compelling, dense, funny and varied...
the language is always beautifully rendered and emotionally satisfying...a play to be treasured!" (Atlanta Theater Review)
DUETS - Four sets of characters, four crucial moments;
Jonathon and Wendy are on a blind date and hoping to get it right this time even though they’ve never got it right before; Barrie is not really interested in women but Janet sees that as no reason to stop trying; Shelley and Bobby have decided to holiday in Spain to finalise their divorce whilst drowning in cocktails; Angela is marrying for the
third time to the dismay of brother Toby and amidst a barrage of
bad omens and a dress resembling a parachute.
A gloriously funny examination of the chaotic world of love, relationships and why the grass is never greener.
Duets is an hilarious tribute to the strength and madness
of the human heart.
Note: Though originally conceived for a cast of 2,
larger companies have also produced the play with a cast of 8
