Description

Our Almost Instinct Almost True is Philip Larkin's famous comment on whether what will survive of us is love. But was that true for his much-betrayed girlfriend, Monica Jones? This play by Rita Ippolit explores the theme of unrequited love, as Monica and her new friend share their loneliness and indulge in grim humour, learning more about each other than they wanted to know. Performed by Teddy Walker and Julia Munrow.

Wow, loved this play, probably my favourite show I've seen at the Fringe so far. The acting was excellent and the play had a great pace to it with some really funny moments. The direction was subtle but then again that is a sign of great direction. Highly recommend even if you're not familiar with who Larkin is

It goes without saying that this is a must-see for fans of Larkin, but no-one can ignore the discussions of legacy and history that pervade modern politics.
