A two-hander that is inspired by multi-generational interviews with over 40 people that articulates the vapid nature of contemporary dating through a fast-paced comedy-drama. Through a series of dates and apps interactions, we meet characters in search of something better in a world where profiles are currency and one right (or wrong) swipe is enough to change a life. A play about love, identity and fate penned by award-winning playwright and hip-hop artist/beatboxer Testament (Black Men Walking, Orpheus in the Record Shop).

Touring to Nottingham Playhouse, Bristol Old Vic and Talawa Studios. 

Part of Talawa Firsts on Tour, A double bill of new work.

"Presenting these two pieces as a double-bill marks the first time that Talawa has takenproductions from Talawa Firsts to key cities outside of London – encapsulating the vision of2023’s festival, New Ideas; No Limits. The two pieces complement each other hugely, using off-beat humour to tackle themes of extraction, temporality in people and places, (be)longing and the perils of late-stage capitalism."
