Dirty Great Love Story to run at the Arts Theatre in London
The hit play comes to London following a UK tour.
It has been announced that the Fringe First Award winning Dirty Great Love Story will run at the Arts Theatre in central London from 18 January to 18 March 2017, with an official opening on 25 January 2017. The production comes to London following a UK tour.
Written by Richard Marsh and Katie Bonna, it is directed by Pia Furtado with design by Camilla Clarke and is produced by Tim Johanson Productions.
"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?"
Combining drama and poetry, it is described as a "laugh-a-minute exploration of modern romance." The play was awarded a Scotsman Fringe First Award for outstanding new writing in 2012 and was shortlisted for both the Holden Street Theatre Award and the Brighton Fringe Award.
Casting and further details are yet to be announced. Tickets are now on sale.
