This November our Soho Rising festival hosts a bunch of the brightest new Soho Theatre Labs voices, over a fortnight.
One of the ‘Best Duos at Edinburgh Fringe’ (Scotsman), Thick ‘n’ Fast presents Not Quite, a fast-paced physical comedy about the interview process and the struggle to prove one’s worth.
Intent on making a good first impression, two naïve young hopefuls pursue the seemingly impossible feat of cracking the job market. With fingers crossed, strong handshakes and uncomfortable footwear, Cassie and Georgie will overcome every setback to get onto the career ladder.
‘An excellent double act. Great one-liners, a clever theme and slick delivery.’Fringe Review
Questioning how we define worth and deal with rejection, Not Quite brings the surreal, absurd and tragic nature of the selection process to life, tapping into the vulnerability and tedium of the job hunt from both sides of the interview table.
'Hilarious and very memorable moments...a breathless and often toe-curlingly hilarious showcase of the interview from hell.’
'The jokes are powered by an underlying anger and a fire-like glint burning beneath [their] amiable onstage personas.’
‘Incredible energy … smart and knowing … this comedy perfectly captures the anxieties of trying to find work in today’s economy.’
