  ★★★★ "Finely-honed silliness"

The Scotsman

Best friends Trygve Wakenshaw (Kraken, Nautilus) and Barnie Duncan (Calypso Nights) delight in working together. In their onstage leather office, one-liners and physical comedy bounce around with the speed and wit of an out-of-office auto-reply email.

Business drones Grareth Krubb and Dennis Chang whittle away the minutes in the barren office of Ruck’s Leather Interiors, patiently waiting for the phone call that may or may not give them something to actually do.  In between the drudgery of the 9-5, the minutiae of office existence are transformed into incredible slapstick as these two clown and comedy performers come together to create something greater than the sum of its parts. Dialogue is minimal, but jokes are plentiful, in this extraordinary celebration of the banal.

★★★★ "A howlingly funny, exquisitely performed hour of office-set slapstick from two of New Zealand's most exciting comic talents."

The Telegraph

"The performance is perfect...strange slapstick joy.”
