ED2012 Theatre Review: Built For Two (Somebody’s Theatre)

ED2012 3/5 Reviews ED2012 Theatre Reviews

‘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.

theSpace @ The Mile, 3-25 Aug (not 5, 12, 19), 11.50am.
