Dates, Times and Prices


Saoirse is in her celibate era. She'd rather staple her tongue to a table than face another date with a guy who's looking for a girl who ''doesn't take herself too seriously.'' Instead, Saoirse scrolls Tiktok endlessly, happy in her little bubble... until one day, out of the blue, her contraceptive coil starts speaking to her. Turns out it's got some strong opinions on her dating life. Can her frustrated coil convince Saoirse to give men another chance? A musical comedy for anyone who has downloaded Hinge and then immediately googled: Am I asexual or just depressed?
