APRIL 2019 | Volume 178
Duets is a tribute to the strength and madness of the human heart — a funny examination of the chaotic world of love, relationships and why the grass is never greener. Watch the comic team that brought you last season’s hugely successful On A First Name Basis re-ignite that stage, each playing four, count ’em four, sets of characters at four crucially hilarious moments.
Jonathan and Wendy are on a blind date and hoping to get it right this time even though they’ve never got it right before; Barrie is not really interested in women but Janet sees that as no reason to stop trying; Shelley and Bobby have decided to go ahead with a holiday in Spain while finalising their divorce and drowning in cocktails; Angela is marrying for the third time to the dismay of her brother Toby and amidst a barrage of bad omens and a dress that is a fashion disaster.
