Operation – Love Story (Jennifer Williams / PBH’s Free Fringe)

By | Published on Sunday 11 August 2013

Do you believe rom-coms are destroying the fabric of our society? Writer and performer Jennifer Williams appears to think so. In this delightful one-woman show, she plays a neurotic singleton who needs to step away from the Bridget Jones box-set and back into reality. Her efforts to make her neighbours fall in love are sweet, funny and sometimes just a little scary. Aside from the gentle comedy, Williams has a more serious aim: to highlight the subtle hypocrisies the media feeds us about romance. Some beautiful but hard-edged ranting contrasts nicely with the lighter comic capers in ‘Operation: Love Story’, rescuing it from being just a fluffy, ineffectual yarn. Playing at 12.15pm, it would make a great lunch hour treat.

La Tasca, until 24 Aug, 12.15pm.
