Sue Arnold and Brenda Wait live their lives through laughter. Theirs is not an existence defined by dreams or cloaked in symbols. They take life as it comes, with peerlessly comic results.
The pair dream of being cowboys, while dealing with the little difficulties we all have to face. They spend more time speaking to objects than people, and have to come to terms with a past, present and future which are not exactly grandiose.
From such inauspicious beginnings, the duo derive a spectacular, celebratory show since Sue and Brenda are above all great clowns. No red noses here, just everyday clothes. In their hands, the smallest of incidents becomes cause for hilarity as they bounce from gag to gag. No aggression, no custard pies, just a much-needed reminder of the beauty of ordinary things.
Directed by John Bolton, the pair dance, sing and play the banjo. All-round athletes of the stage, they take the audience along with them on a journey which makes much fun of the performers themselves, but also the way in which their work is perceived.
