I Didn’t Mean To Be A Virgin In The 80s (Laura Hayden)

By | Published on Tuesday 16 August 2011

Laura Hayden spent her teenage years in California surrounded by bright colours and synth-pop, much like the setting for this year’s show. In the 80s, Laura had her heart broken, and here she tells the story in all its painful glory. Those were the days when relationships were more innocent, cars were passed down through an entire family, and your ex-boyfriends couldn’t stalk you on Facebook. The journey through Laura’s formative years is sweet, funny and light-hearted; she’s cute, and the videos and pictures that accompany her routine are fun, but it’s not going to set your world alight. The show is perfect, however, if you want to feel nostalgic for the hazy, neon-coloured 1980s.

Sweet Grassmarket, 4 – 29 Aug, 4.05pm (4.55pm), £6.00 – £8.00, fpp90.
