Jerry’s wife has recently died. Within 48 hours he’s unexpectedly contacted by two very different internet dating sites. "Big Brother" clearly knows who and where he is. Intrigued by this intrusion, Jerry sets off investigating his dilemma - which site, if at all, should he choose; the ‘no strings’ type which encourages infidelity, or the other super-elite site whose users truly believe they are royalty.
Jerry meets a date from each site; chalk and cheese, Veronica and Clare, both with their own particular stories to tell. We watch him as he explores their past lives, motivations and influences. We discover why they really joined the sites they did - and what they, and fate with its cruel twists, have planned for him next.
We’re very excited, grateful and privileged to have been granted permission to use a George Michael and Toby Bourke track in its entirety in the production which also contains more George Michael music.
"One of the best visiting productions we have had the pleasure to stage."
The London Theatre on Leicester’s last play, ‘Hurricane Hill’
"a dense and intriguing production."
"Certainly a play worth checking out."
