RUNNING TIME/NOTICES: 50mins (no interval)

In 30 years, the cultural change in courtship has been vast. Today, overwhelmed by technology, are we losing sight of what human connection truly is? Join Polly as she navigates the perils of love in the digital age. Armed with all the latest dating apps and sites, Polly rides the waves of players, lovers, weirdos – and everything in between.

Based entirely on real-life experiences, this hilarious, romping, multimedia exposé of modern dating scrutinises the deeper, brutal side of love and life, challenging our preconceptions of women and dating, sex and autonomy. 

Loquitur Theatre was founded in 2015 by Gemma Harvey and Lou-Lou Mason. The name Loquitur translates to ‘she speaks’ and so reflects their singular commitment to producing work with women at the centre of the story. Their critically acclaimed Fémage à Trois provides an annual platform to develop new writing and push the agenda for women in theatre. Writers who have contributed to this exciting showcase over the last two years include Anna Jordan, Polly Churchill and Charlotte O’Leary.
