A cutting take on romantic catastrophes, Dirty Great Love Story follows two hopeless young people as they accidentally have a one night stand after a drunken night out. Packed full of embarrassing moments, painful awkwardness and some genuine snapshots of romance, the play asks whether a one-time thing can really stand the test of time!
Appearing in the original staging of the play, Marsh and Bonna took a step back to allow for other actors in the Arts Theatre run. Both have several credits to their names; Marsh’s one-man play Skittles was commissioned for Radio 4 and his sitcom Richard Marsh: Cardboard Heart featured a cast including Phil Daniels, Jemima Rooper and Russell Tovey.
Bonna had recently embarked on a successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe’s Summerhall venue with her popular show All the Things I’ve Lied About, was developing a TV series and was also nominated for Best Actress by The Stage. Dirty Great Love Story was most recently seen Off-Broadway.
Combining poetry, drama, rhythm and rhyme, the wonderfully comic play was perfect for modern day daters! Having began performance at the Arts Theatre London from January 18th and officially opened on January 25th 2017, Dirty Great Love Story played for a limited run until March 18th 2017.
