What would happen if your Air BnB guest showed up for the night and then never left again? When saving the farm calls for a modern approach, a couple at odds finds themselves hosting an odd-ball and things get funny fast.
Cado is the work of 19-year old playwright Ian Kuiken, and is performed by a cast of (mostly) young actors who are participants in G.R.A.F.F.I.T.I., the Fringe’s youth mentorship program. What Kuiken lacks in sophistication, he makes up in hilarious characters, fast-shooting dialogue, and perfectly timed poignant moments that are just long enough to drive his larger message home.
The cast is strong, and does a great job. It seems like perhaps one or two stage cues were missed, but hey, on opening night even the seasoned pros have their slips. After all, that’s what live theatre is all about, isn’t it?
Featuring themes around sex and weed culture, this play is perfectly rated at 14+.
Liz’s note: The play is called “Cado” and is performed by G.R.A.F.F.I.T.I. - Green Room At Fringe Festival… Is The Initials. It was performed at Havana Theatre as part of the 2018 Vancouver Fringe Festival.
