REVIEW: Lovefool

This is a perfect show to bring you out of lockdown and back to live theatre! Funny, moving and full of nineties nostalgia.

Rachel finds herself alone after a long marriage and launches herself onto the dating scene to find a replacement for her loveless husband. But what does she want? What does she really, really want? Iconic 90s toys hilariously take on the characters of her pragmatic close friend, her larger than-life mother, her self-obsessed ex and new astrophysicist boyfriend, Matt. They all have their points of view, but what will Rachel decide is best for her? Can Sugar Magazine provide the answers she seeks?

This one-woman show is an insightful piece of writing with some very clever comedy. Rachel effortlessly brings her world of characters to life as she puzzles out where her future lies. The delivery is beautifully natural and slick and it works excellently in this little pub theatre. The laughs come thick and fast but it is not without its poignant moments. A perfect antidote to lockdown blues. Credit to the Bread & Roses for keeping the theatre Covid-secure. See it if you can. Click Here For Review
