‘Built For Two’ tells of the evening before Julie’s birthday, when she is out for a night on the town with her flatmate, newly moved in boyfriend, and her childhood best friend who is always late. It’s a fantastic comedy centred on a bathroom in a flat and the birthday celebration, covering everything from how to use mouthwash correctly, to a love triangle (that turns out to possibly be a love square instead), “shots before shoes”, drunken kisses, regretted liaisons, and back story galore. The four actors work well together to make a cohesive performance and with angst, humor, and bathroom routines, the play really captures the lot of those who have recently graduated from student life.
