A triple bill of three 20 minute shows featuring; High Tea, Blue and Mal and Mullet. All performances are at the Brockton Collective venue.
British critically acclaimed physical comedy duo James & Jamesy (of the 2013 Fringe Festival smash hit ‘2 for Tea’) lure you into their delightfully bizarre world with their innocence and endearing chemistry. A friendship fused by a weekly tea party between two unlikely friends, High Tea is a story of finding freedom by trusting those you love. Their respective idiosyncrasies and the peculiar formalities of their tea rituals bring vitality to the mundane, turning an ordinary tea party into a fantastic wonderland of stimulation and play.
Bring a teacup.
★★★★★ – “Complete and utter fun.” CBC
★★★★½ – “True genius.” Beat, London
“A truly fun riff on British farce that’s steeped in playfulness, meticulous physical comedy, and an unabashed love for the unexpected.” CV Victoria
“An irresistible delight. Their unusual combination of verbal and physical comedy with improvisation involving audience members put the ‘play’ (as in spontaneous fun) back into ‘play’ (as in theatre). One reason for the glee that greets the performers is the way they remind an adult audience of the children they once were, and still are.” Stage Door, Toronto.
