From the darkness of an unlit stage, two strangers meet, each with a chair and what appears to be the same task to complete: place the chair, then leave. Their encounter in this inky limbo disrupts their awareness of self and purpose, propelling them headfirst into an exhilarating discourse of understandings and misunderstandings. Performed entirely in darkness, the only light in this show originates from custom-built, illuminated costumes.
With masterful physicality and quick-witted wordplay, James & Jamesy in the Dark conjures answers to the age-old questions "Who are we?" and "Why are we here?" The result is laugh-out-loud hilarious and surprisingly illuminating.
