An eccentric mix of get-on-the-dance-floor music, rap, hoola-hooping and spoken word weave a coming-of-age story that is both hilarious and heart breaking in equal measure…

Love Songs is a little one-woman-show that explores the personal and political puzzles of our love lives through the autobiographical poems of a hopeless romantic. It is a classic tale of classroom crushes and awkward bedroom encounters – a cautionary guidebook on how to navigate the millennial dating scene – a glimpse under the covers at our deepest desires and the all-consuming fear of ending up alone. Enlisting the help of everyone from the audience to Elvis, Queen B to Bublé, and Macy Gray to Marvin Gaye, Love Songs hopes to be something that’s surprisingly relatable, but just a little bit different.

Why? Because ultimately, this is the story about him. This is the story about the one.

16+ Explores adult themes and sexual violence.

Love Songs is the debut show from poet Alissa Anne Jeun Yi and bold, emerging theatre company Trip Hazards. It heads to Brighton after successful performances at The Hop Fest Fringe, Camden People's Theatre's renowned 'Calm Down Dear' Festival of Feminism, POW! Thanet International Women's Festival and The Tom Thumb Theatre, Margate.

Praise for previous performances:

"Totally engaging from the warm up to the end. One of those shows I will think about for years…a very gifted communicator. Technically brilliant.”

"Dealt with a difficult subject matter with humour and pathos."
