Loneliness, unrequited love, friendship, shared adventures, searching want ads for a partner, innocence and unexpected answers are some of the themes played out in this red-nosed clown escapade, Fools For Love directed by Jan Henderson, at the Vancouver Fringe Festival.
Two neighboring clowns share their quest for love as they both hunt the personal ads in newspapers. Sometimes in the wrong section. “Looking for someone who can do heavy lifting!” says the enthusiastic Rocket, played by Adam Keefe. “That’s jobs!” returns the more pragmatic Sheshells, played by Christine Lesiak. They pause in the obituaries and pets before they return to the disappointing want ads. “No clowns!”
