O Christmas Tea
What: Channeling the anarchic spirit of Python, Mr Bean and British pantomimes and also adding a hefty dose of madcap, highly physical and even surreal comedy, the whimsical Vancouver-based UK comic duo James and Jamesy are back with what might be this season's most rib-tickling local stage show. Need a storyline? Try this on for size: when catastrophe strikes at their annual Christmas tea party and the world is flooded with tea, our heroes leap into action to save themselves and their audience from the rising tide, proving to all that friendship will always triumph over adversity. On stage at theatres throughout the Lower Mainland and beyond, there are lots of opportunities to catch this show during the 2019 Christmas season.
