My overall impression

I went to see the closing night of Afterloves, and I have to say that I wish I came to see it more than once. A brilliantly funny show brought to life by two amazingly funny and talented actors, I spent the whole 90-minutes of the show laughing. Each couple pairing just kept getting funnier and I couldn’t wait to see who the next pairing would be.

After the last pairing performed, I almost wished there was another couple to watch just as long as it meant that the play would keep going.

Both Ron Hanks and Betsy Reisz are extremely talented actors, bringing each character that they embodied to life the minute they stepped onto the stage. They worked extremely well together and it was amazing to see them own the stage both alone and together. Their witty and comedic timing just added to the show, making sure there was never a moment of silence in the theatre.

Afterloves: Love Lives in the Afterlife was brilliant overall. The writing was great, the acting was incredible, and the laughs kept on coming. It was definitely a 90-minute adventure into Heaven and once it was over, I didn’t want to come back down to Earth.
