Blind Date by Dave Simpson at the Jermyn Street Theatre
Biteback Theatre in association with the Jermyn Street Theatre will present the London premiere of Blind Date by Dave Simpson, at the Jermyn Street Theatre in central London from 26 to 31 January 2015.
The comedy was previously seen at the Octagon Theatre in Bolton and began life at JB Shorts, Manchester's celebrated biannual festival of 15-minute-plays by television writers. It was then turned into a full length play.
It explores the possibilities and the pitfalls of internet dating through the story of two reluctant singletons, who exaggerate their own desirability in order to attract their perfect partner. The cast includes Will Travis, Susan Mcardle, Drew Cain, and Verity-May Henry.
Blind Date is directed by Alice Bartlett who has described the production as "a story about looking for love, which is something everyone can relate to. It's very funny in places, moving in others, but also quite dark at times".
