Jessie Cave – I Loved Her (Pindippy)

Jessie Cave

Jessie Cave holds her audience in the palm of her nervous hand. The one that isn’t holding an iPhone. Or a baby. ‘I Loved Her’ spoke to me, as though one of the voices in my brain was up there on stage. It’s a voice most millennials know: the one that wonders about filters, scoffs at niche hashtags and knows that it’s not real stalking if it’s on the internet. But this iteration has shadow puppets and dance routines, and is certainly a lot more entertaining – I was in stitches, and so was everyone else. Acutely self-conscious, self-consciously quirky and quirkily cute, this is a show for anyone who’s ever stalked their partner’s ex on Facebook. Which is everyone, obviously.

Underbelly, until 30 Aug.
