Fun with balls

DSC_0061.JPGSince we'd been unable to catch it while it played the Vancouver Fringe Festival last month, my wife and I were happy to be able to attend the finale performance of "Bolloxed," the play by Darren Barefoot, last night.

The play does what television shows and movies cannot. In the small studio theatre of the Kay Meek Centre in West Vancouver, it took advantage of the intimate space. Paul Drexler and Mercedes Dunphy are the only actors (playing the two leads and assorted secondary characters), and there is barely any set to speak of.

It was funny, written well, and skilfully directed. The actors did great work, and in less than an hour took us to modern Dublin to show us around its squares, pubs, museums, trains, sports fields, software cubicles, and medical clinics. And then a few of us went for drinks afterwards.
