‘Look at all those couples. Which one will leave. Which one will run. Which one is cheating on the other. Which one will die first. Him. Him. Her. Him.’

What happens when two friends who were always meant to be together, get together – and stay together? No one told them life was going to be this way…

A dark and uncompromising play about romance, expectation and mortality, James Fritz’s Ross & Rachel takes an unflinching look at the myths of modern love. It was first produced by MOTOR at the Assembly George Square Theatre as part of the 2015 Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

‘Heartbreaking… a neat blend of cynicism, whimsy and sincerity… if the liberal sprinkling of pop culture makes this piquant, the gender politics and wasted lives give it plenty of real-world clout’

‘Perfectly formed… a thoughtful hour that requires no prior knowledge of the American sit-com… blackly comic’

‘Savagely well written’

‘Shockingly good… a virtuosic piece of writing, playful, post-modern and devastatingly serious, all at once’
Time Out

‘A startling piece of new writing… uses pop culture as a way of exploring common fears and anxieties… Fritz unpicks what happens after the happy ending’
The Stage

‘Exquisitely written… fascinating’
Broadway Baby
