Dirty Great Love Story


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.

Dirty Great Love Story, premiered at The Pleasance Dome in August 2012 as part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. It won a Fringe First Award and Katie was nominated for Best Actress by The Stage.
