A Preoccupation With Romantic Love
an almost tragic comedy
by Laura Thurlow
Bring forth your broken hearts and exorcise your exes – a darkly funny monologue about giving up on love.
Approaching her 30th birthday, after ten years of failed romances, Laura meets with the six ghosts who have broken her heart to exorcise them for good. A darkly funny, poetic monologue about letting go of the dream of ‘The One’ and loving yourself in their absence. The show explores gender, beauty and the fear that follows women who love men – their greatest known predator. How can you heal yourself while still compelled to chase the very thing that breaks you?
