So… is a new entertainment by winners of the Herald Archangel at Edinburgh in 2019, the legendary independent “masters of comic invention,” Ridiculusmus, in which two long-lost brothers overcome their polarized perception and come together to get something done while sorting through their late mother’s estate.
Business, personal matters and the right connection for some vintage technology pepper a joyfully chaotic exchange that somehow embraces everything difficult and wrong in the world and proposes workable solutions that will definitely not “blow you away” but warm the cockles of your battered heart.
Made in lockdown via zoom, it began as Brexit response, became a Covid response and then a lament on separation.
Written and performed by David Woods and Jon Haynes, the co-artistic directors and founders of Ridiculusmus, a 30-year artistic partnership of international acclaim, avant-garde mess and polymathic pursuit of the ever-unattainable.
Winner of the Jury Shark Award, FinFringe, 2022
