Rapid Fire Theatre and Dad’s Garage Productions knock it out of the park yet again with the return of Scratch. The show features some of the most finely crafted improv you will see at this year’s Edmonton Fringe. Theatre veterans Kevin Gillese and Arlen Konopaki continue their barrage of wit, timing and theatrical lunacy as they work with only a simple shortlist of audience suggestions and then build a one-hour show off of that template. What follows is a frantic journey that cannot be ignored, as Gillese and Konopaki work off of each other’s rhythmic chemistry to produce a show where no topic is out of the realm of possibility. The core of the show is built around clever musical cues and methodical scene-building so precise, that at times, it doesn’t seem like improvisation. This is even further strengthened by both performers’ knack to read not only the room but one another as well. If you’re wandering around the fringe grounds and have a free evening, grab a drink, a few friends and go see Scratch. Reviewed by Jake Pesaruk.
