MEDIA FOR FIRST DATE LAST DATE:
Flirt with First Date Last Date
Untraditional, playful and intimate, Tea Time Creation Company creates a little magic.
The Fringe Festival is an opportunity to showcase the unconventional, so who says you can't have a play in a bar? "Theatre is a kind of ritual and so is going out for drinks with a friend or loved one," says performer and co-creator of First Date Last Date, Ailsa Galbreath. "By having the show at Good Robot, we are hoping to blend the two." Collectively created by the Tea Time Creation Company, this 25-minute show is about love and connection and is sure to be pretty Fringey. "We wanted to create something bite-sized, something intimate and playful, and not necessarily traditional theatre," says Galbreath. "Audience members can expect to be taken on a gentle ride that includes lots of storytelling, a little singing,a little dancing and hopefully a little magic. Flirtatious and funny is what we're after." Cozy up with a delicious brew and watch the show unfold.

First Date Last Date (Good Robot). See this show. James, Gina, Katie and Ailsa have such a natural chemistry and physical shorthand this sweet treat of a show flies by. The subject matter could very easily have veered into saccharine and overly sweet or depressing territory, but the 4 of them keep their hands firmly on the wheel. Strong ensemble work and performances have me working up the courage to ask for another date.
