Event Navigation

In an increasingly serially monogamous society, we all face the possibility of more serious breakups in a lifetime than ever before. Rosie Wilby interweaves a rich, romantic narrative about two people connecting and disconnecting, and the visits of three ghosts from our romantic past, present and future.

★★★★
“From hilarious to heart-wrenching”

Female Arts

In a brand new solo show, the Radio 4 and festival regular interweaves a rich, romantic narrative about two people connecting over a shared love of Richard Hawley and the London skyline with their eventual breakup emails and ghostly returning memories.

Although she never thought she’d be inspired by Chris and Gwyneth, is ‘conscious uncoupling’ the way forward? If we could erase our past loves as Kate Winslet and Jim Carrey’s characters attempt to do in the film Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, would we eventually decide against it as they do? Rosie has previously discussed the disruptive impact of serial monogamy and called for new, more compassionate language around relationships, friendships and separations in her TEDx talk Is Monogamy Dead?, Radio 4 Four Thought piece A New Currency of Commitment 

★★★★★
“A beautifully intimate and thought-provoking gem… one of the highlights of this year’s Brighton Fringe”
