After reopening the Kiln Theatre last year, Amy Trigg’s Reasons You Should(n’t) Love Me will return to the north London venue this autumn. Reasons You Should(n’t) Love Me is at the Kiln Theatre from 5 to 26 November, as part of the show’s national tour.

Reasons You Should(n’t) Love Me follows Juno. Born with spina bifida, Juno finds herself throughout her twenties and what it means to love and be lonely. In a four-star review for London Theatre, our critic said: “"Life can be shit and wonderful at the same time," Juno tells us, and she's right. We shouldn't measure our lives in terms of "have" and "have-nots" but rather by our own personal happiness. Trigg's play isn't shit and wonderful though; it's just wonderful.”

Amy Trigg performs her play at the Kiln. “Since first being produced, Amy has now become a Peggy Ramsay Foundation / Film 4 Awards Scheme Playwright in Residence here at Kiln. Her talent, passion and energy is invigorating and vital for Kiln. Our deepest gratitude to the Women’s Prize for Playwrighting for introducing us to Amy and her brilliant play,” said the Kiln Theatre’s artistic director, Indhu Rubasingham.

Reasons You Should(n’t) Love Me features scenic design by Jean Chan, lighting design by Guy Hoare, composition and sound design by Elena Peña.
