Richard Marsh and Katie Bonna’s play will arrive at the Arts Theatre in the heart of London’s West End following a UK tour and New York run.


Running at the Arts Theatre from the 18th January until the 18th March 2017, Marsh and Bonna’s play is an  examination of what modern romance is.

Two hopeful, hapless romantics get drunk, get it on and then get the hell away from each other. In her eyes, he’s a mistake. A mistake who keeps turning up at parties. In his eyes, she’s perfect. He’s short-sighted. An achingly funny romantic catastrophe of good intentions and bad timing that asks, can a one night stand last a lifetime?

Combining drama and the poetry, Pia Furtado’s production is produced by Tim Johanson Productions.

Talking about the news Richard Marsh and Katie Bonna said: “We’re overjoyed that Dirty Great Love Story will be swaggering and spewing, loving and losing its way back to the stage. It’s going to be a huge treat to see two other actors playing out our excruciating embarrassments, boozy triumphs and awkward romantic disasters. And perhaps the world could do with some love and laughter right now.”

The play was awarded a Scotsman Fringe First Award for outstanding new writing in 2012 and was shortlisted for both the Holden Street Theatre Award and the Brighton Fringe Award. Bonna also received a nomination for the prestigious Stage Award for Best Actress at the Edinburgh Fringe 2012.

Dirty Great Love Story will play at the Arts Theatre from the 18th January to the 18th March 2017. For more information and to book tickets visit:
