Vancouver Fringe Festival review: Angels & Aliens

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Who’s responsible for the mess humans are always making of our lives: angels or aliens?

      That’s the existential question playfully explored in Jeff Leard and Sydney Hayduk’s tight two-hander. It’s also the basis of a video game that roommates Jeff and Sydney are playing to deal with the awkwardness of having slept together the night before. The game allows for a witty, sped-up perspective on human history, and Leard and Hayduk give tight performances, making the transitions between realities seamless. Once the central conceits are established, though, there’s plenty of zip and texture but few surprises.
