L'UNITHÉÂTRE PRESENTS...Tubby and Nottubby: TEMPUS EXTRAORDINARIUS
A THÉÂTRE FOOLS AND FEATHERS PRODUCTION
Written by, directed by, and starring
SOPHIE BRECH and LOUIS FORTIER
"To be or not to be." Six words that bring life to Tubby and Nottubby. Haunted by the breath of Shakespeare and bathed in the wonderful madness of comedy’s late greats Laurel and Hardy, this play brings the glorious return of our favourite clowns! This play tells of the strength, but also the frailty, of love and dreams – the ultimate defense against cruelty in the world.
Tempus extraordinarius is not the sequel to Le Destin tragicomique de Tubby et Nottubby (presented in L'UniThéâtre's 2014-2015 season), but its fiery echo, where the fortuitous meeting of two vagrants, one night, on the docks of la Seine in Paris, allows the world to preserve a glimmer of humanity as everywhere extends a new era of terror.
Confronted by a world deprived of all freedom, condemned to survive, Tubby and Nottubby will be carried by the turbulent flows of History and Time, in an epic journey of their own selves.
Above the world’s barbarity and chaos, Tempus extraordinarius is a tribute to awe, to dreams, to hope, and to life.
