Durban - Comedy duo, the husband and wife team of Aaron McIlroy and Lisa Bobbert, bring their Marriage for Dummies to the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre on February 21.
Billed as a hilarious survival guide for anyone brave enough to take on life’s ultimate challenge, the show runs from February 21 to March 11.
“We all know that marriage is more than a relationship – it’s a WILD adventure,” says McIlroy. “Navigating the ups and downs of married life takes planning, elbow grease and help.”
Here the couple share the secrets of marital bliss and help you come to gripe - er grips - with your partner’s annoying habits. Structured around the basic format of a Marriage Seminar, the two comics lead the audience through a number of whacky characters, they identify most of the “problems” marriages face. The show focuses on many of the flashpoints including constant fighting and complaining; household chores and DIY; and the outlaws
“We believe that ‘comedy’ provides a unique framework, acknowledging the complexities of marriage without getting into the blame game, thus, allowing our audience to internalise the lessons without feeling condemned” says McIlroy.
Cue Online’s reviewer, appraising the show at last year’s National Arts Festival in Grahamstown. “This dynamic duo never disappoints. If you are in need of a good laugh and a relaxed evening out, this is the show to watch. A quirky mixture of comedy, dance, and music with interesting insight in how to make a marriage last.”
Tickets R150 through Computicket. Shows are at 7.30pm (Tuesdays to Saturdays) and 6pm (Sundays).
