Double Bubble


Comedy Drama Play: 'Double Bubble' by Nicolas Ridley

In some ways Gina and Lois are very much the same. In other ways, they couldn’t be more different.

Gina is a career woman whose company provides ‘high-level digital solutions to meet low-level logistical challenges’ – although she may not be entirely sure what this means. Her new boss, James, is causing her problems and it’s plain that she’s more than a little stressed. 

Lois has a low-level job in a department whose function is to answer the telephone and listen to customers’ complaints – although the main customer complaint is that no one answers the telephone. As a consequence, she feels worthless and undervalued.
But Gina and Lois have been friends for years and, until recently, have always had each other to lean on. However, it’s been several months now since they last had coffee together. The reason? The ‘misunderstanding’ over Bruno.
No matter. Bruno’s the past. That episode is dead and buried. Water under the bridge. Forgiven and forgotten. Or is it? In any case, the big news is that Gina is engaged. And so, it seems, is Lois. A double wedding is in prospect …
But there’s a problem. Could it be that Gina and Lois are both engaged to Quentin?
What begins as a light comedy becomes darker as the balance of the relationship between Gina and Lois changes and, in the end, with the final denouement, everything turns inky black.
Set in a coffee shop, with simple props and sound effects, the play is easy to stage and offers a wonderful opportunity for the actresses playing Gina and Lois to explore their talents for comedy and dramatic interaction.
