Seeing as I know there are several of you just dying to ask me on a date, but feeling a little intimidated as to where, I thought I’d help you out. You can take me to The Lieutenant of Inishmore. Thanks to Fighting Chance Productions, it is playing at the Culture Lab at 1895 Venables off the Drive, until Saturday February 26th, 2011.
Really gentlemen this has everything you could ask for for a perfect date:
- a witty plot on historic events, to test out her intellect and to showcase yours to her;
- just the right amount of violence and gore to have her jumping in your arms;
- a healthy dose of funny to combat any blood spatter (and if she or he doesn’t laugh, wake up call, ditch ’em);
- and you don’t have to dress up, as Tom Stevens will provide all the eye candy she needs.
Just don’t laugh at any dead cats, if you know what’s good for you.
Now, I’ve seen it once, but I’d happily go again, it was that good. There is just something about how Fighting Chance Productions does dark comedy. Terrifyingly funny! Especially when your date says minutes before the curtain goes up, having no idea of what your in store, “At least there will be no dismemberment.” Your adorable Rob!
Bravo to the cast – Tom Stevens (as Padriac), John David Papp (as Davey), Emma Rae Cawood (as Mairead) and Hamish Cameron (as Donny). A fine production! Especially love how jovial Padraic is as he tortures his victims. What more could a gal ask for!?!
