Written and Rhymed by Richard Marsh and Katie Bonna
Directed by Pia Furtad
Cast: Richard Marsh, Katie Bonna
A very human tale of good intentions and bad timing. Two hopeful, hapless romantics get drunk, get it on, and then get the hell away from each other.
In her eyes, he's a mistake. A mistake who keeps turning up at parties. In his eyes, she's perfect. He's short-sighted. This achingly-funny, romantic catastrophe fuses poetry and prose to ask - can a one night stand last a lifetime?
