Yet for Norman and Vivian, the elderly couple in Ridiculusmus’ new show about ageing, time is a languid, sluggish force. Every weighty moment is stretched to its limits, threatens to stall, and is marked by discomfort, weakness and struggle.
The dark and uncomfortable path the aged couple embark on in Ridiculusmus’ Die! Die! Die! Old People Die! has a feel of The League of Gentlemen surrounding it where you expect the unexpected.
Ridiculusmus is at the top of their game and Die! Die! Die! Old People Die!, complete with fart jokes, is an absolute must-see for anyone who wants to be awed by what two men on a small stage can achieve.
