Description

'I'm not going to gamble the happiness I have with you for a chance at happiness with someone else – what's the point?' Ollie and Laura have been together for three years, and are one pack of reduced M&S olives away from killing each other. But with an engagement ring hidden in an en-route takeaway, Ollie has the task of stopping Laura from walking out altogether. I Lost My Virginity to Chopin's Nocturne in B-Flat Minor tackles the fear of loneliness and dependency to the point of destruction.

Loved this, all of it from the excellent writing to the talented actors. Kept me gripped from start to finish. Delighted to see yet another triumph from #papermugtheatre. 5/5

Highly recommended. This is a remarkable and moving piece of theatre with a beautifully
judged performance.

This was so believably acted and in such an intimate theatre that you almost felt uncomfortable looking in on this destructive relationship. It was an astutely written view of relationships and what people want/need from them - the foibles that are appealing at the beginning and utterly irritating after time, the often unspoken expectations and disappointments.

Highly recommended.

"You may be drawn to I Lost My Virginity To Chopin’s Nocturne in B-Flat Minor for its interesting, if not particularly snappy title, but what you’ll find is a quick-paced two hander that keeps the audience enthralled from beginning to end."
