If Mr. Bean ever got chummy with Jean-Paul Sartre the result might be a little bit like In The Dark, the latest hard-to-describe theatrical charmer by Fringe Festival cult favourites James & Jamesy.
There’s an unlit stage on which two strangers meet, each holding a chair. Although their only task is to place the chair and then depart, that unexpected encounter provokes the two men to commence a wacky examination into the meaning of concepts like “self” and “purpose.” As the understandings and misunderstandings pile up, the resulting performance ping-pongs between deft physical comedy and witty wordplay and between enigma and enchantment.
