Phil and Phill (2 stars)

This article is from 2009.

Phil and Phill are best mates. So much so that they’re planning a double wedding: if they can find some brides. The show’s intention is one of studied discomfort as the pair occupy a far too close relationship for onlookers to witness, but the result is one of toe-curling awkwardness. It picks up towards the end when the pathos they’ve been striving for kicks in, but by that time it’s too late.

Pleasance Dome, 556 6550, until 31 Aug, 5pm, £8.50–£9.50 (£7.50–£8.50).
