Description

An award-winning, one-woman science comedy-musical about the neuroscience of love and loneliness. Combining heartfelt tales of relationship highs, lows and the downright confusing, Carys Eleri's marvellously personal show is told with plenty of sass, chocolate, hugs and bangin' tunes too. Come and discover how love works within all of us, why it makes us do crazy things and why hugging is the answer. 'Hilariously relatable, a really special intimate evening' **** (TheatreFullStop.com). Best Cabaret Award at Adelaide Fringe Festival 2019.

Free cwtches and chocolate from the delightfully cuddlesome Carys Eleri, who relates the neuroscience of love, loss and loneliness with song and humour. As a terminally lonely obnoxious old git with a scientific bent (and an ex obsessed with neurotransmitters and the 'medicalisation of normality'), this fake (Lincolnshire-born) Welshman found a lot of stuff that was familiar, but learnt a load too. And, more importantly laughed a lot.
The show features smart songs and raps delivered in a variety of styles that would have Jones the Voice gasping in Welsh wonderment. Even if it didn't make life lovelier in the long run, it was, as a good hug and human interaction always is, a delightful sunny interval in the Vale of Tears.
(To those prone to taking this sort of thing seriously, I am exaggerating for comic effect here; though I do have a Dignitas loyalty card, it's only because I make them — Barry Cryer even asked me for one)

This show is amazing! Carys is lovely and does an amazing job telling her stories through science and music. Definitely a must-see show at the fringe, I could see it over again and be just as in love with it. The audience was involved and laughing along with Carys’ relatable stories.
