Vancouver Fringe Festival review: Romance taut, well-acted, and oh so politically incorrect
The Judge asks, “May we not have peace?”, but the play is by David Mamet so the answer is, “Not fucking likely.”
A Jew bemoans hiring a goy lawyer: “It’s like going to a straight hairdresser.” And that lawyer describes the prosecutor as being “as gay as a V-neck sweater". The joke of political incorrectness repeats itself and the farcical chaos wears thin, but Brian Hinson contributes a flawlessly ditzy turn as the Judge. And keep your eye on Jose Os’s Bailiff: he’s always got somethin’ happenin'. Tightly directed by Adam Henderson.
