Joel and Cat hate each other, which makes it a little difficult being partners in a tandem story-writing project - they must take turns completing a story one paragraph at a time with no previous discussion. When Cat's dad and Joel's mom start dating, the two finally find something they can agree on: Their parents' burgeoning romance must stop. Nick Earl and Rebecca Sparrows perform their own work, taking turns narrating the two perspectives of this lighthearted story. Deadpan, observant Joel and sarcastic, clever Cat are both likeable and charming, and the narrators' enjoyment of the story is infectious. Listeners will find themselves laughing at the bizarre plot twists that Joel and Cat come up with for their assignment.
Then Cat's dad and Joel's mum start dating, and they can finally agree on something - it's got to stop. But will sparks fly between Joel and Cat for all the right reasons as they go about setting a few things straight?
A very funny, very clever 'tandem' story written and narrated by two of Australia's favorite authors.
