Left & Right, a physical comedy without language, was first conceived in 2010 as a college thesis project. As the show came together, test audiences eagerly became loyal supporters of our new characters, “Left” and “Right.” Jay and Nate realized that what they'd created had the potential to touch a much greater audience. Even before graduation in May, they preformed four shows in the greater Boston Area. People of all ages were sharing how the experience had stuck with them for days after and how it brought a smile to their face every time it crossed their mind. There was nothing malicious or satirical in the show, just honest,  humor with themes that deepen with time. This became and remains the mission: to bring love and laughter to any and all that experience Left & Right.
