Do A Show (Hayley Ellis and Brennan Reece)

By | Published on Saturday 3 August 2013

In the basement of Espionage, Hayley Ellis and Brennan Reece do a show about doing a show. This not-so-dynamic duo play best friends who aren’t getting along and at times even use the audience against each other. This, combined with their determination to get through the hour without one of them having to phone the other’s mother, results in a comical mix of magic tricks, game show dating and the sharing of intimate secrets. The Fringe often plays host to awkward weirdness and this is no exception, though it works well for them. There was a bit of stopping and starting but the duo always picked it up again, demonstrating the saving grace of this performance: Ellis and Reece’s enthusiasm.

Laughing Horse @ Espionage, until 13 Aug, 12.00pm.
