'I saw a butterfly flying out to sea. It will get lost out there and die' - Iris Murdoch, The Sandcastle. Long-limbed award-winner tries to pin down the things that we should really let go. Live instrumentation, emotional manipulation, freestyle rap. Things are going to get sad. Going on holiday this year? Do anything nice at the weekend? How're the kids?

From this point, two of the UK's finest improvisers abuse their psychic link for your amusement, unravelling and reweaving a whole host of memorable characters, imagined environments and poignant tales in a high-wire hour of unscripted comedy. Quirk-packed characters, quotable one-liners and sepia-tinged vignettes tumble out of this completely improvised exploration of everyday conversation. Slick, whip-smart, and with chemistry to burn, witness the never to be repeated wit and invention of this fearless duo. Performers Chris Turner.
