Stupid Cupid (Unrestricted View / Liz McMullen)

By | Published on Wednesday 8 August 2018

It’s the final exam for a new Cupid, who has to master the secrets of love in order to earn her wings of Cupidity. She’s had plenty of training from her mentor, but she discovers that there’s a lot more to it than she’d been told as she tries to suss things out with the help of us, the audience, as her test subjects. Liz McMullen absolutely commits to her character, brilliantly playing the eager matchmaker-to-be, which helps to alleviate the awkwardness when she’s discovering the physical side of love. A quirky exploration of the complexity of love, ‘Stupid Cupid’ entertains while light-heartedly making a point about how love is much more than a simple numbers game.

Underbelly Bristo Square, until 27 Aug.
