Two Fat Gentlemen met in a lane. Bowed once politely and bowed once again. How do you do? And how do you do? And how do you do again?

Welcome to Percussion Lane. Bowing at each meeting is not compulsory, though you are welcome to do so. Head on a slightly off the wall journey with a spattering of characters. This is not a trip down a rabbit hole but, a trip off the back of children’s riddles and nursery rhymes. Two men discuss identity. Two women discuss body politics. Two policemen discuss classism. Two schoolboys discuss existentialism. Two babies discuss gender.

A funny and honest blend of physicality, poetry and storytelling, Two Fat Gentlemen is an exploration of the power of chance encounters.
