A romantic comedy... about romantic comedy.
Mike and Virginia. Both single. Both competitive. Both lecturers in film studies. Her specialty is romantic comedy, his is monster movies. She thinks he's an arrogant knuckle-dragger, he thinks she's a bitter cow. The very worst thing they could do is fall in love.
So begins this fast-moving romp of a play from two of New Zealand's busiest screenwriters. Kathryn Burnett and Nick Ward (Second Hand Wedding and Love Birds) have set out to explore and subvert every romantic comedy convention in the book resulting in a love story that is smart, funny and surprisingly tender.
An evening of unabashed entertainment for lovers and cynics alike.
