Sticky Door (Katie Arnstein)

By | Published on Tuesday 9 August 2022

Let’s talk about sex: Katie Arnstein’s plan for the New Year was to have ‘unattached’ encounters each month, to prove she could; up to now her one-night stands lasted… until the relationship was over. A series of amusing anecdotes ensues, starting, obvs, with ‘January’, for all identities are protected. Arnstein’s an accomplished storyteller and very likeable. You feel like you could be her best friend Laura, and she’s crying on your shoulder whenever it doesn’t go to plan, or cystitis flares again. It’s a lovely set, much nicer than the “worst flat in the world” she lives in, and she punctuates her well-crafted tales from the armchair with witty songs accompanied by ukelele. Go and find out why it’s called ‘Sticky Door’.

Pleasance Dome, until 28 Aug.
