REASONS YOU SHOULD(N'T) LOVE ME
Kiln Theatre and Paines Plough present
REASONS YOU SHOULD(N’T) LOVE ME
written and performed by Amy Trigg
Following a sold-out, critically acclaimed run in 2021, Amy Trigg‘s ‘enormously entertaining’ (The Guardian) Reasons You Should(n’t) Love Me returns to Kiln following a regional tour.
For a long time I didn’t know how it’d work.
Or what I’d be able to feel.
People would ask me if I could have sex and I’d feign shock and act wildly offended whilst secretly wanting to grab them by the shoulders and be like “I don’t know, Janet!”
Juno was born with spina bifida and is now clumsily navigating her twenties amidst street healers, love, loneliness – and the feeling of being an unfinished project.
Joint winner of The Women’s Prize for Playwriting 2020, Amy Trigg’s remarkable debut play Reasons You Should(n’t) Love Me is a hilarious, heart-warming tale about how shit our wonderful lives can be.
