Dirty Great Love Story

Pleasance Dome, Bristo Square

Star rating: * * * *

Richard and Katie met on a night out. They had a one-night stand. They both have different viewpoints on said one-night stand. He’s delighted, she’s not sure.

They meet at a number of social gatherings over the course of the next two years, one awkward moment after another.

This love story is as tumultuous as the next. It’s a roller coaster of emotions for both parties.

Story-telling at its best, Dirty Great Love Story has it all. Expertly told through the eyes of Richard Marsh and Katie Bonna, who also wrote the piece, the pair really shine in this pacey, witty and moving take on the rom-com genre.

Gloriously littered with belly laughs and heart-wrenching moments, this tugs the heart strings every which way it can.

The writing is snappy, true, current and above all else,
