2P4H is back for a limited run. I’ve seen the play four times – I identified with it on too many levels to see it only once. Over the years, it’s played the world, and I’ve seen it in Vancouver (with the originals, Ted+Richard), New York, Vancouver again (with the ladies whose names escape me), and Toronto.
When I heard it was returning, I screamed for joy. Turns out Ted and Richard want to do it one last time, so their kids can see it. As a former piano student who was often frustrated, then a frustrated piano teacher whose students will never practise enough, to a person who came to terms with her musical limitations – I can’t recommend this play enough. Lawyers, doctors, figure skaters, musicians – successful or not – all identify with the theme of this play.
I threatened my piano students with a “FAIL” for the year if they don’t see this, and am even okay with them missing their piano lesson to do so.
Check it out, people – it’s a very special piece of Canadian theatre. I’m so proud it’s back, and to promote it.
