The thing that I love about this, is the whole thing is storytelling done in prose AND is so easy to understand! Give it a go, it's really refreshing!
For anyone who's experienced the London dating scene, this play will resonate with you Absolutely hilarious and cleverly written in rhyming couplets no less , this show is a must-see! Except right from the start, this play turns such a popular genre into a true amazing piece of art. The two actors bounce onto the stage and act out about 3 characters each over 90 minutes.
You feel you are living the pain, the laughs and the disco scene. If you are in your 30s, gluten free and from South London a lot of the play will resonate with you. There's even a special shout out to Petts Wood much to my delight as I use to live next door to that place of the world. I read the timeout review of this and I am truly impressed its gone from a poetry reading in Balham to the Fringe to a London Theatre.
Long may this good run, run. Btw there are still poetry excerpts in the play.
If I could give this 6 stars I would! I could not recommend this play higher! It was really great and I am so glad I got tickets on the spur of the moment with todaytix. It is a very small and intimate theatre, you can easily get a great view.
The play is a love story between the two actors, who describe everything to you, its just them and a couple of props, but the story and their performance truly make the show so much more! They play multiple characters throughout and explain what each of their main characters is thinking. It all works so well together, and best of all the story is really relatable and real. Went for 90 minutes very easy to watch, never a dull moment.
Combining poetry, drama, rhythm and rhyme, the wonderfully comic play was perfect for modern day daters!
Recommended for Fans of the little treats that can be found at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival will love this production, which brings fringe theatre to the West End. Modern daters or those who are romantically disinclined should also pay the show a visit!
