Brooke has it all: the job, the flat, the girlfriend… but what happens when things
go tits up just before your 30th birthday? Brooke looks online for answers but it
feels like everyone’s doing so much better than she is, and her overbearing
mother is only another reminder of what life’s supposed to look like by now.
A bisexual Bridget Jones for the online generation, this tragicomic one-woman
play and its lovably hapless heroine is for anyone who’s wondered why they feel
so lonely when connecting with others is meant to be easier than ever.
Developed on the Soho Theatre Writers’ Lab and longlisted for the Tony Craze
Award 2018 this is writer/performer Sadie Clark’s debut play. Directed by
Madelaine Moore whose credits include: ‘Ladykiller’ (WINNER VAULTS 2019
