Of People and Not Things
An examination of break-up as apocalypse
This article is from 2010.
Going into this show without knowing anything about it can be disorientating: the play is set in the aftermath of a world-destroying event (a couple breaking up), although this is only alluded to obliquely. It’s longer than the average Fringe show and bursting with exposition – indeed, there’s so much to assimilate that the mind occasionally wanders when in need of a rest, though the two leads deliver the piece with charm and wit.
