Felix Scott (The Angry Brigade, The Archers and Inception) and Ayesha Antoine (Red Velvet, Holby City and Grange Hill) have been cast in Dirty Great Love Story which makes its much-anticipated West End debut at the Arts Theatre from 18 January 2017.
Dirty Great Love Story tells the achingly funny story of two hopeful, hapless romantics get drunk, get it on and then attempt to get the hell away from each other.
The play was awarded a Scotsman Fringe First Award for outstanding new writing in 2012 and was shortlisted for both the Holden Street Theatre Award and the Brighton Fringe Award.
Pia Furtado, the play’s director, said: “It’s a particular privilege as a director to revisit a great script. This new production of Dirty Great Love Story is one of those moments for me. I can’t wait to get stuck into this total treat of a play with actors as loveable, skilled and funny as Felix and Ayesha! I’m thrilled that we will be bringing this heart-warming, hilarious, emotionally-messy celebration of modern romance to the West End, and in particular the intimate gem that is The Arts.”
Dirty Great Love Story runs at the Arts Theatre from 18 January until 18 March.
