An eccentric mix of get-on-the-dance-floor music, rap and spoken word weave a coming-of-age story that is both hilarious and heart breaking in equal measure. Put your feet up and get ready for an exciting cocktail of entertainment, modest opinions and intoxicating wordplay…
Love Songs is a little one-woman-show that explores the personal and political puzzles of our love lives through the autobiographical poems of a hopeless romantic. It is a classic tale of classroom crushes and awkward bedroom encounters – a cautionary guidebook on how to navigate the millennial dating scene – a glimpse under the covers at our deepest desires and the all-consuming fear of ending up alone. Enlisting the help of everyone from the audience to Elvis, Queen B to Bublé, and Macy Gray to Marvin Gaye, Love Songs hopes to be something that’s surprisingly relatable, but just a little bit different.
Why? Because ultimately, this is the story about him. This is the story about the one.
Please note: this performance explores adult themes and sexual violence.

About the artist
Having left university with a Law degree, Alissa has decided there is no reason why she can’t make a difference to the world through theatre instead – which is proving to be much more enjoyable. Based in Kent and London, she has performed everywhere from the Faversham Fringe to Theatre N16.
