From two multi-award winning, masterful British comedians, and creators of 2016’s hit 2 for Tea (Winner of Orlando Sentinel’s Best-of-Fest), comes the outrageously funny and brilliantly inventive journey of James & Jamesy in High Tea: Another British Comedy, on stage May 17 – 28, 2017 at the Orlando Repertory Theatre (Silver Venue) as part of the Orlando Fringe Festival. Transcending physical comedy and redefining immersive theatre, the 16-time Best-of-Fest winners sweep spectators out to sea in an aquatic escapade brimming with whimsy, action, and ingenuity.

When a catastrophic disaster floods the world in tea, caffeine connoisseurs James and Jamesy leap into action, finding innovative and hilarious solutions to keep them afloat. Evoking the spirit of well-known maritime adventures including Noah’s ArkJaws, and Titanic, audience members will ease into their roles as pivotal characters in the work, playing along with the unforgettable, witty antics.

High Tea is about the primal pleasure of playing in every sense of the word. I can’t think of a show that will make you more profoundly happy than this.” (Stage Door, Toronto)

Since 2012, James & Jamesy’s shows – 2 for TeaHigh Tea, In the Dark, and O Christmas Tea – have been performed 350 times, combined. More than 60,000 audience members have relished their cheeky, laugh-inducing theatrics celebrated among children and adults alike.

Hailed as “a child’s imagination on steroids” by the London Free Press and “complete and utter fun” by the CBC, critics rave for the charismatic James & Jamesy in High Tea: Another British Comedy. A must-see performance on the International Fringe circuit, the unstoppable duo regularly receives glowing praise, having been named Best of Fest (Orlando Sentinel), Most Outstanding Show (London), Best of Fest (Toronto), Pick of Fringe (Vancouver), Best Comedy (Victoria), Patrons’ Pick (London), and Best Script (Montreal), among many more.
