    Fresh from a breakup, stuck in a weird job and having sex with randomers in search of The One™️, this is a(nother) one woman show about a(nother) woman. She’s really trying - but at a school reunion, all her peers are talking about investment banking, children and marriage. Feel like keeping her company? 

    Edith Alibec’s bittersweet play celebrates the bravery of failing (and laughing) at life when you've found yourself out of place - in another country, in the wrong company, or when you just feel like you've been left behind.

    supported by the Keep It Fringe fund, the Romanian Cultural Institute and the National Cultural Fund Administration

    This is a preview for a full run at Edinburgh Fringe, C Venues, Aquila Studio, 2-27 Aug. Supported by the Keep It Fringe fund.

    "Our children live in the most deprived ward in London and their parents cannot afford to pay for the classes and activities many more privileged children enjoy after school and at the weekends. A free-to-access youth group run by a local theatre in a professional setting is an incredible opportunity."

    Local school teacher
