Strategic Love Play
This event has passed
So they’ve both swiped right. Now they’re meeting for the first time. Facing each other. As if that’s a normal thing to do.
She’s being uncomfortable, and he’s a total bore. The vibe is horrific and the banter is even worse. But something is keeping them in their seats. Something is making them stay.
With acid wit, Miriam Battye’s new play takes a scalpel to modern romance, interrogating what we really talk about when we talk about love.
