FRINGE REVIEW: Drunk Enough To Say I Love You

Politicians Sam and Guy provide a thought-provoking look at how our world has ended up the way it is when they get in bed with each other.  Artful dialogue keeps Perry Gratton and Stuart Hoye on their toes as the main characters in Drunk Enough to Say I Love You.  They weave an intimate relationship of finishing each other’s sentences and tossing megalomaniacal ideas back and forth with lightning speed.  They tear one another’s clothes off while plotting drug trafficking, torture and biological warfare.  They display joyful enthusiasm at their own ingenuity and resourcefulness.  The answer to everything is “train the mujahideen”, and their attitude towards the space race sums up their worldview: “we have it, we like it, and we’re going to keep it”.  If they’ll give up their families for each other, will they sacrifice the world for power?  If they’re addicted to control, what will they do when they lose it?

Four out of five stars.
