The Fantastical Adventures of [Not] Being With You is an endearingly quirky and original piece of new writing. It was chosen as the Blue Elephant’s in-house production following a successful rehearsed reading last October, marking the start of the relationship between the Blue Elephant and its writer and director, Justen Bennett, who moved to London from his native Canada in 2010.
Join A and B as they embark on “us”, a love story told through games and make-believe. With just two suitcases of props and playful ingenuity, the two men share their cherished, childish and even churlish moments of romance.
This is Justen’s third play and, with its story-telling style and elements of physical theatre, it plays with the idea of portraying relationships as we remember them.
