2 Become 1 (Swipe Right Theatre)

By | Published on Wednesday 26 August 2015


The best girls night out I’ve had in a while, courtesy of Swipe Right Theatre, who take us back to the 90’s and invite us along to their party. Jess has just been dumped, and so in an attempt to cheer her up, Jess’s three friends take her speed dating. The result is a light-hearted comedy featuring all your favourite girl-power hits from the likes of Britney, Christina and Shania, all performed with brilliant comical skill by the talented cast. It also offers a poignant reflection on the world of modern dating, asking us to re-examine internet dating sites and the frequent failure of these platforms to offer meaningful connection. The four performers are instantly likeable, and ensure we have a great time watching this piece, a must see!

C Nova, until 31 Aug.
