Pomme Is French For Apple (Paul Watson Productions)

By | Published on Sunday 31 August 2014

Toronto double act Liza Paul and Bahia Watson use their latest show ‘Pomme Is French For Apple’ to openly discuss the subject of woman’s sexual pleasure and experience, something arguably overlooked or ignored in the mainstream media. Using humour as a weapon of sexual liberation, through sketches and songs the show focuses on the culture clash between generational attitudes. The pair handle this specific issue with intelligence and creativity, though sometimes other topics with a confusing ignorance. The sketch format works up to a point, though borders on the repetitive. But the pair’s characters are well crafted and fleshed out, drawing from a wide range of sources, and help to demystify the central topic and unite the audience along the way.

Underbelly Cowgate, until 24 Aug.
