Dumped is a one woman musical comedy shit-storm about the first time your heart gets smashed into a million tiny pieces, and the songs that make you feel less alone with your crazy, crazy break-up thoughts.
We are so geared towards LOVE and finding THE ONE and as such, there is SO MUCH MATERIAL on break-ups. But for Emily, a lot of this break-up content just wasn’t helpful. She didn’t want to watch rom-coms where the cis-gendered, white, heteronormative protagonist cries into a bucket of ice cream, eventually finding love in an unexpected series of quirky events. She didn’t want to watch motivational speeches on how this would make her a stronger person. She wanted to be pathetic. Break-up songs let her do this, with 0% perspective and absolutely no shame.
This show unpacks the beautiful, pathetic and empowering break-up song genre, highlighting the good, bad and the most pitiful. Part stand-up, part music performance and part emotional unravelling, Dumped is about surviving through song.
