King’s Head, London – until 29 April 2017
Have you ever had a night in with the girls and found yourself singing along to Britney into your hairbrush and dancing on the sofa, pretending to be a girl group from the ’90s? Don’t lie, we all have. Bridget, Titanic, body glitter we miss all of it but 2 Become 1 and Swipe Right Theatre have brought it all back, and it’s better than before.
The lovely and talented Kerrie Thomason and Natasha Granger took their idea and devised this energetic and charming show from the beginning. After two successive Edinburgh Fringe runs and continued performances at The King’s Head Theatre in London, the two playwrights remain very humble about their work and just want everyone to have a good time.
After Jess is dumped by “Mr Perfect” her friends are desperate to pull her out of her Haagen-Dazs misery and hit the town. The answer soon presents itself, Speed Dating (can it get any more 90s?). With a 90s playlist (that needs to go on Spotify because I need it!) Jess, Amanda (Mandy), Charlie and Molly dance their way through the night in the search for Mr Right, encountering many Mr Wrongs along the way.
“We really want to poke fun at the perceived glamour and shallowness of ‘90s pop culture, but in a very affectionate way – it was a time when strong bonds between female friends were actively celebrated and this is our tribute to that.” – Kerrie Thomason
Comedy at it’s best, improvisation and great voices, the cast not only help their friend have a good time but they get you dancing around and singing along. If you are looking for a great night out for you and your chicas, look no further!
