MY

ROMANTIC HISTORY

 

Perfomed 16 November - 6 December 2011

at Teater Trixter in Gothenburg

GEST presents the Swedish premiere of My Romantic History, Winner of the 2010 Fringe First Award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. A comedy about love, loss and laminating machines.

If you haven't met someone by the time you graduate, you're going to marry some idiot from your work. It’s that simple.Do you know how they get animals to breed in captivity? They put them in the same cage.

A few too many pints at an after work social and suddenly Tom and Amy are in a relationship. They didn't plan it, they didn't really want it and the fact that they work together just makes it worse.

Office romances are tricky, especially when you still haven't gotten over your ex.

"Outstandingly good, witty and entertaining, touching and dynamic, with acting performances one rarely gets to experience in Sweden." Göteborgs-Posten (Click on the link to read the full review in Swedish)

"Tight and funny." Göteborgs Tidningen

"It is, quite simply, ridiculously good." Göteborgs Fria Tidning

"Funny and fast...well worth seeing." Kulturbloggen
