About the Show Less...

A show about love, loss, and the stories we tell ourselves when things have gone wrong. Read More >

A man and a woman tell stories of ordinary and not so ordinary heartbreak. The woman repeatedly recounts the story of the end of an affair, each time remembering it differently. The man tells stories from many different people, each a snapshot of sorrow, big or small, that takes its place in a growing catalogue of break-ups, humiliations, death, bad dentistry and love letters that never arrive.

Part of Spill, a three-week, new international festival of experimental theatre, live art and performance for London.

Unlike film, theatre doesn't have an official age classification organisation. That means all age recommendations are subjective and should be treated as guidelines unless otherwise stated. With this in mind, we ask you to use your judgement in regards to a show’s suitability prior to purchase. However, we are more than happy to help you make a decision.
