Hen & Chickens Theatre, London – until 14 February 2018
Monorogue’s new show The Morning After provides us with an opportunity to eavesdrop on the comings and goings of ‘The Love Clinic’ on the day after Valentine’s Day.
We meet an array of lovestruck clients from the ‘Neighbourhood Watcher’ who is wrongly accused of stalking, the psycho bunny boiler or the soon-to-be new dad who fears he may be pregnant too.
The witty monologues were written, and performed, by different actors though stitched seamlessly together with some clever nods to contemporary culture including free coffees at Pret and the perils of auto-correct when messaging your new love interest.
This funny show also proved to be quite relatable. At times you found yourself relating to some of these tragic characters whether it was unrequited love, parental love, lustful love or the bored-of-love love. This added to the humour of the play as we could all place ourselves in some of these hilarious scenarios.
Overall the play was clever, funny and relatable.
