To Have And To Hold (Ribbon)

By | Published on Thursday 25 August 2011

Lucy is a bored bridesmaid at her best friend’s wedding. Tristan is a good-looking graphic designer with a guilty conscience. You guessed it: the two meet and instantly fall in love. However, ‘To Have And To Hold’ is no straight forward rom-com – the lead couple’s attempts at getting together are constantly thwarted at every possible romantic moment by an assortment of dead, old, racist, suicidal and mysterious wedding guests. Oh, and a goat. Marital melodrama at its best, ‘To Have And To Hold’ is full of snappy one-liners, perfect comic timing and makes do without walking the same clichéd wedding jokes down the aisle. An hour of unbridled hilarity that will have you in tears of laughter and frustration.

Paradise In Augustine’s, 6 – 29 Aug (not 15, 22), times vary, £5.00 – £7.00, fpp304.
