High Tea, A Body Site, Annapurna
High Tea, Body as Site, Annapurna

The wet weather may have returned, but that just becomes an excuse to get inside. Here are three shows we think you should not miss this week:

[dropcap]1[/dropcap]James & Jamesy are back at it, serving up their unique brand of comedy with a nice ‘cuppa. In High Tea (Sep 24 – Oct 4) a catastrophic disaster floods the world in tea, and it is up to James & Jamesy to save the day. Darlings of the Fringe Festival circuit, Aaron Malkin and Alastair Knowles are masters of physical comedy in a show that is full of genuine surprises.

[dropcap]3[/dropcap]Daryl Shuttleworth and Lucia Frangione star in the Canadian premiere of Sharr White’s Annapurna (Sep 26-Oct 10). A story of love and forgiveness, Annapurna tells the story of the cowboy-poet Ulysses who becomes terminally ill and is reunited with his estranged wife for a final reckoning. Their reunion, charged by rage and compassion, brings back the worst and best of their former bond.
