52 Pick Up, Starring Gemma Wilcox and Sam Elmore
52 PICK UP
written by TJ Dawe & Rita Bozi
performed by Gemma Wilcox & Sam Elmore
directed by Elizabeth Baron

THE "BEST OF FEST" & SELL OUT HIT SHOW of BOULDER FRINGE 2008 is BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND!!! - NO 2 SHOWS THE SAME!!!

"This is provocative, eerily personal theatre [...], achingly (or hilariously) familiar."
- Melissa Martin, Winnipeg Free Press

ABOUT THE SHOW:

The story: Very simple. They meet, they fall in love, they fall out of love, they break up. But with this concept you might see them break up before they meet. You might see 'The First Kiss' following a fight, or a bed scene before their second date, or apologies for arguments that haven't happened yet!

The odds of two performances of 52 Pick-Up ever having the scenes in the same order are 1 in 80 658 175 170 943 878 571 660 636 856 403 766 975 289 505 440 883 277 824 000 00 000 000. More or less. Although this number is outrageously big, it is real.

WHEN:

Fri, Jan 31 @ 8pm
Sat, Feb 1 @ 8pm
Fri, Feb 7 @ 8pm
Sat, Feb 8 @ 8pm

WHAT THE PRESS SAY:

One of the "10 Plays to Watch" choices in The Denver Post's Winter Arts Preview!
-John Moore, Denver Post

"Ingenious...fun and interesting...Elmore and Wilcox have the chops...this show is crisp"
- Mark Collins, Daily Camera

"Wilcox and Elmore bring subtlety and ingenuity to the scenes...They make an intriguing game of the card pick-up, moving through it in a dance-like, synchronized way, watching each other intently, silently teasing and challenging...Elmore has a ruffle-haired charm and a good sense of humor {and] Wilcox intrigues you through combinations of opposites: the contradiction between the dancer's hardness of her torso and the soft roundedness of her moves, for instance, and the fact that her emotions well up with such spontaneity are expressed with a mime's skilled professionalism"
- Juliet Wittman, Denver Westword

"Slick, well-paced, and completely fun to watch."
-CBC Winnipeg

"52 Pick Up" requires ferocious and fully committed performances, and that's what Gemma Wilcox and Sam Elmore have honed...These two are confident and comfortable together. Between scenes they circle each other like animals in heat, then dive in to whatever scene comes up with abandon and total trust. It all makes for a quick evening that's at times funny, passionate and sad, but at all times honest..."
- John Moore, Denver Post (Denver 2009)

"52 Pick Up is a enlightening and fun take on the vicissitudes of love."
- Bob Bows, Colorado Drama (Denver 2009)

"If you can only go to one show this festival, 52 Pick Up would be a good choice...A romantic relationship that is complex, funny, infuriating, passionate, Mars vs. Venus typical, funny (oh, did I already say funny?, well, it's very funny), and frighteningly familiar...Wilcox and Elmore pull off this amazing feat of acting with extraordinary subtlety. Each scene is compelling and I was moved in every direction...This show is clearly the work of experts."
- Leslie Palleson, Plank (Vancouver 2010)

"52 Pick Up is an example of some of the best of what the Fringe has to offer: clever and witty, it nonethless hinges on strong acting...The real strength of this piece is the performers' one-hundred percent commitment to the physicality of their scenes...It is the subtle facial expressions, body language, and the impeccable comic timing of Elmore and Wilcox that actually imbue the scenes with emotional content...Genuine conflict and specific details are delivered with ironic humour and tenderness...The script is intelligently written."
- Kirstie McCallum, Plank (Vancouver 2010)
