"FACE TO FACE"
a Quartet of Romantic Comedies
played in an hilarious tour-de-force
by only 2 actors.
A HIT IN OVER 20 COUNTRIES!
"This bittersweet quick-change comedy
is streaked with pathos and is effortlessly charming,
with each character sketched with verve and skill"
(Sydney Morning Herald)
Though originally conceived for a cast of 2,
larger companies have permission to produce the play
with a cast of 8, 6, 4, or however many they prefer.
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.

"A first-rate theatre comedy that is a guaranteed success...
A sophisticated, accessible and sometimes rip-roaring
comedy that never loses its tenderness...
The play gracefully explores contemporary themes
and anxieties. The audience responds with laughter
and even spontaneous applause...
The theatre has added extra performances to meet the demand for tickets, which is extremely rare these days...
This show has everything to entertain the public
and brighten their weekend."
