Following a highly acclaimed UK tour and New York run, Fringe First Award winning Dirty Great Love Story makes its anticipated West End debut, in a new production, at the Arts Theatre in 2017.
It’s going to be a huge treat to see two other actors playing out our excruciating embarrassments, boozy triumphs and awkward romantic disasters.
Two hopeful, hapless romantics get drunk, get it on and then get the hell away from each other. In her eyes, he’s a mistake. A mistake who keeps turning up at parties. In his eyes, she’s perfect. He’s short-sighted. An achingly funny romantic catastrophe of good intentions and bad timing that asks, can a one night stand last a lifetime?
Dirty Great Love Story combines drama and poetry in this laugh-a-minute exploration of modern romance.
Writers Richard Marsh and Katie Bonna comment, We’re overjoyed that Dirty Great Love Storywill be swaggering and spewing, loving and losing its way back to the stage. It’s going to be a huge treat to see two other actors playing out our excruciating embarrassments, boozy triumphs and awkward romantic disasters. And perhaps the world could do with some love and laughter right now.
Richard Marsh and Katie Bonna write and perform together and separately, like Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. They began writing together due to both living in Tooting and sharing a love of love stories. But mostly because they both lived in Tooting.
