This new production will arrive at the Arts Theatre from the 18th January 2017.
Making its West End debut early next year, Dirty Great Love Story combines drama and poetry while looking at the modern idea of romance.
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?
It has now been confirmed that Felix Scott and Ayesha Antoine will star in the production directed by Pia Furtado.
Talking about the news, Pia Furtado said: “I can’t wait to get stuck into this total treat of a play with actors as loveable, skilled and funny as Felix and Ayesha! I’m thrilled that we will be bringing this heart-warming, hilarious, emotionally-messy celebration of modern romance to the West End.”
Felix Scott is known for his performances in The Angry Brigade at Paines Plough; The Archers, BBC Radio 4 and Inception. Meanwhile, Ayesha Antoine is known for her roles in (Red Velvet, Garrick Theatre; Holby City and Grange Hill.
Written by Richard Marsh and Katie Bonna, Dirty Great Love Story 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.
