Just because you’re confident and sassy on the street doesn’t mean you don’t need love between the sheets.
Get intimate with two possibly delusional and love-sick women as they share their experience of feelings, sex and relationships in Love Letters to F**kbois; an ever-evolving ode to love in the age of Tinder.
Created and performed by the unlucky-in-love Melina Wightman (HAIR) and Lia Stark (Einstein on the Bitch, Welcome to the Phallaxy), these women share possibly a little too much on their experiences with the men they undress for. Get in quick as the performance closes this Saturday.
