About the showRichard Marsh and Katie Bonna bring their Fringe First Award-winning play Dirty Great Love Story to London’s Arts Theatre for a West End debut. Running for a limited 9 week season, Dirty Great Love Story is the achingly funny exploration of modern romance that has earned acclaim across the country, opening in January 2017.
Dirty Great Love Story follows two hapless but hopeful romantics as they accidentally get together in a moment of drunkenness. Combining poetry, drama, rhythm and rhyme, the play asks if a one night stand can really last forever! Full of embarrassing moments, excruciating awkwardness and plenty of romantic mishaps, this is not one to be missed by modern-day daters!
Bonna and Marsh previously appeared in the play, but will be replaced by other actors in the London run. Bonna was recently nominated for Best Actress by The Stage, and is developing a new TV series, with her recent show All the Things I’ve Lied About at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe at Summerhall. Marsh’s one-man play Skittles was commissioned for Radio 4, with his sitcom Richard Marsh: Cardboard Heart starring Russell Tovey, Jemima Rooper and Phil Daniels.
First opening at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2012, the play earned a prestigious Fringe First, before embarking on a sold out UK tour and transferring to Off-Broadway. Now, the riotous romantic tale comes to London, opening at the Arts Theatre on January 25th and playing until March 18th 2017, with previews beginning January 18th 2017.
