Finely-honed silliness
★★★★ The Scotsman

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

A glorious piece of clowning that reduces the simplest aspects of office life to outright absurdity.
★★★★ The Times

The performance is perfect...strange slapstick joy.
 Chortle

A masterclass in slapstick and prop comedy.
 Great Scott

DIFFERENT PARTY

Trygve Wakenshaw and Barnie Duncan in association with Aurora Nova

New Zealand

[[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.///Die Büro-Drohnen Grareth Krubb und Dennis Chang das Warten im kahlen Büro von Ruck's Leather Interiors auf sich und warten geduldig auf den Anruf, der ihnen vielleicht etwas zu tun gibt – oder auch nicht. Zwischen der Plackerei von Morgens bis Abends werden die Minutien des Büro-Daseins in unglaublichen Slapstick verwandelt, während diese zwei Clown- und Komödiendarsteller zusammenkommen, um etwas Größeres als die Summe seiner Teile zu schaffen. Der Dialog ist minimal, aber Witze sind reichlich vorhanden in dieser außergewöhnlichen Feier des Banalen.]]
