In true soap opera fashion, the music swells as a woman answers the door and a man enters. It is her sister’s boyfriend who has come to the party early to confess his love for her. He is so in love that he goes on and proposes marriage to her. She admits that she is also in love with him and accepts his proposal. As they are kissing, her boyfriend knocks on the door. They let him in and he appears nervous. Then, he goes on to propose to her! The story line continues in this crazy fashion with each new development being bigger and more ridiculous until a huge plot twist changes everything.
The first half is a hilarious parody of a soap opera. The over acting by the two couples includes Arti Ishak, Monty Cole, Cassidy Slaughter-Mason and Salar Ardebili has the audience laughing non stop just like Two Mile Hollow, which appeared at the Den Theatre two years ago. The original emotional music by Jeffrey Levin adds greatly to the humor and setting the scene. Then, the twist occurs and the tone switches sharply. It’s a very spectacular moment that could only work in theatre. It becomes very serious and dramatic with a touch of performance art like White Rabbit Red Rabbit, which was also produced at the Den Theatre last year.
