How far can you push a sex metaphor, a romantic friendship, and questionable interior décor choices? When Ash and Zee move into their tiny Edinburgh apartment, they begin to navigate the emotional rollercoaster of their early twenties. What they don’t expect is confronting the age-old question of, "do I want to date you or do I just want to be you?" Told through diary entries of two (endearingly strange?) flatmates, Kitchen Underwear follows their search for what queer love means and how to show it.

A little context: leading up to my seeing Kitchen Underwear, I had encountered two really rude people in the hours before the show. The Fringe can be a roller coaster of emotions, and while I should have let the bad behavior of those people roll off of me, I was too deep into my Fringe experience to do so. As a result, I went into Kitchen Underwear in a really bad mood. Within about fifteen minutes of the play, I was fully invested in the world of the story and the performances of the two artists I was watching onstage. The writing, acting, blocking, and design (and the design is self-aware and tongue-in-cheek) were all mesmerizing. The show had me crying several times, and, while I will not give away the ending here, I was fully invested in seeing what happened to the characters and how the story was going to conclude. All I will write is that the authors had the courage to suggest that life doesn't always proceed in a neat, orderly manner. I did not want this show to end. I've seen several shows during my week here at the 2023 Fringe; Kitchen Underwear was one of my very favorites, and one of my favorite things I have seen in any medium in some time. Don't dismiss this review as, "This guy was clearly just having a bad day, but he liked this show." Nope. If you have the opportunity to see Kitchen Underwear, you will authentically be missing out if you don't take it. This is the work of two women who clearly had something to say, and I'm here for it. Highly recommended!

Very engaging! Both performers had a lovely rapport with the audience and with each other, and the story was very sweet and comforting! The minimalist design was a lovely touch, very well suited to the venue and it complimented the performances perfectly! A very nice slice of life show, well worth a watch!
