My husband and I spent an enjoyable Sunday afternoon at the Complex theatre where a delightful play "Roommates" was having it's preview performance. I can recommend seeing it if you enjoy humor, drama, and talented young people bringing to life a dilemma we all face everyday. Well done to you all and thank you for bringing a few hours of pleasure to your audience. -MJ Reid... full review

I've seen the show in it's workshoping days back in college, and I gotta saw it was better. Cast were very supportive of one another, had great chemistry and just worked well. There's always laugh, and the writing is comedic genius. A load of action for you combat types are here too if you enjoy that. The show has room for heart too, and managed to deliver a powerful message very smoothly. If you're into crude humor, topless college dudes, and moments of good feels, I highly recommend watching this show. ... full review

There are so many good things happening in David Stolworthy’s Roommates that I don’t know where to begin – I liked the premise, I loved that the play centered on seeking acceptance into a community rather than forming a sexual identity, and I liked that homoerotic tendencies permeated almost every relationship, illustrating that sometimes straight people can really be the gayest… The playwright does an outstanding job of creating characters that are distinctly different from one another, larger than life, and yet relatable; and the way they are juxtaposed creates numerous opportunities for zaniness to ensue! The jokes are fresh, funny, and fast, as both the playwright and actors easily capture the voice of modern teens. A major shou... full review

My guest and I thought Roommates was well done - both the acting of the entire cast as well as the work of the playwright. We also believed it truly reflected the thoughts of some at a college age - the prejudices and ambiguities of sexual identity. We hope it would continue to be performed after Fringe to refer friends.... full review

I randomly saw "Roommates" when something else I wanted to see was sold out. I read the synopsis and thought to myself, "Hmm... that sounds like that could be fun." And it really was. I'm a huge sucker for college banter, so that stuff was really outstanding. It sounded completely natural and not at all stagey like some other shows do. The cast had fantastic chemistry and the story went from fun to being surprisingly heartwarming by the end. Awesome stuff!... full review

What a pleasant surprise. Didn't get tickets till right before the show. Young talented actors and a decent script make this worth checking out among all the great plays at Fringe.... full review
