A Play I Would Miss a Fight Practice For

What higher recommendation could I possibly give it?

If you can get tickets go see DUEL of AGES at Factory Theatre ( corner of Adelaide & Bathurst St). You have three more chances if you haven't been lucky enough to see it yet - Friday 13th at 9:15 pm, Saturday 14th at 12:30pm and Sunday 15th at 3:30pm. I would recommend booking tickets at www.fringetix.ca ASAP.

Why?

Because it is fabulous.

Six plays that all focus on the line of "dueling" from broadsword fights to the ninja attack squad - why do they fight? For Honour, of course. The writing is fabulous and funny, the acting is great. If you ever wished to see how someone could be seduced by the use of a rapier rather than rapier wit the wordless seduction/dance has to witnessed. The play between the actors, the vingettes of history ( yup, you might learn something, dont worry the beer tent is just outside) the high wire fights without wires... seriously GO SEE THIS.

Why are you still reading .... GO now.... okay fine you have a day but still.
