Liz (Sarah Boughton) and Mitch (CeCe Pleasants) are two new best girlfriends drawn together by their shared love of camping, fear of bears and fearlessness in pursuing each others company. Both self-identify as straight, yet, through misperceptions and booze, spend their first night together in bed. Daniel MacIvors stripped-down comic fable skips through the years as it sends the ladies back and forth over the divide between being soul mates and lovers, capturing the shadings of jealousy and tension, but not the highs of passion; we grasp only what they have to lose, not gain. Still, Boughton and Pleasants have an appealing chemistry that occasionally radiates a simmering heat. More often, as directed by Donald Boughton, theyre an adorable if strident goofball duo navigating MacIvors perceptions of his characters self-protection and awkwardness, and, with less success, some stagy scenes where they refuse to look each other in the eye. Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m. Starts: April 4. Continues through April 26, 2008
