One Year Itch @ Barons Court Theatre (9th-13th January 2024)

I don’t mind if I don’t have sex for an entire year

– as long as I get the promotion”

Tania has her heart set on her dream job but has she unwittingly placed a curse on her dating life?

Our heroine, ably assisted by her bestie Jayne, comes face to face with the trials and tribulations of lesbian courtship. Emotional unavailability, overfamiliar mothers and blatant catfishing abound in this not-so-romantic comedy.

Can she realise her ambition to become organiser of the hottest ticket in town? Will she be doomed to remain everyone’s favourite singleton? And, honestly, was it really all about the Moroccan room?

Anca Vaida is the glue that holds the narrative together, her presence [and] comedic timing is flawless”
