The unique, live storytelling of two friends attempting to reconnect is successfully executed by master actors. Whether you are a genius or an amateur in thermodynamics, you’ll be amazed by the witty wordplay and awe-inspiring animation. Live, lockdown creativity at its best!

A well-done, intelligent piece of theatre. Please note that this was an on-demand show, rather than an "online scheduled" show, as advertised.

I saw this production online last year and I thought it was superb. The challenges of online theatre are many and this was without a doubt the best use of the medium that I have seen. The way it uses live performance interwoven with prerecorded footage and fantastic animation transcended the limitations of the online experience. Highly recommended.
