Toronto Fringe Review: Between Commutes by Sempé


Fast Forward Rating: FFFF (4 out of 5)


Between Commutes is a series of comedy sketches by playwright David Raitt that take a satirical look at modern urban life. This high-energy performance is hilarious and to the point: from workplace anecdotes tobreak-ups, parenting and the daily commute, actors Carly Jones and David Raitt demonstrate impressive versatility, and the ability to captivate an audience from beginning to end. 

Fun to watch, and guaranteed to make you laugh, Between Commutes is smart and satisfying – you won’t want to miss it!



Between Commutes is playing at St. Vladimir’s Theatre, 620 Spadina Ave. (S. of Harbord) as part of the Toronto Fringe Festival.
