A fresh and thrilling take on a modern love story from the composer of critically acclaimed Electrolyte. Love, lust and late nights collide in a musical rollercoaster, taking the audience through the euphoria and distress of two people dealing with their own and each other's mental health. Ria is working with her band to complete a new album – songs charting the rise and fall of a recent relationship. But the more Ria progresses, the more she’s drawn back to the darkness of her troubled past, until we’re not sure where memory ends and reality begins.

Talented young performer but could have benefited from more light and shade . Exhausting performance to experience and you will need a pick me up afterwards. Try this fresh, young, free , contemporary sketch show “ Got legs from Bristol’s The Room Above at Grassmarket Centre. Read their 5 star review in and cheer yourself up!

It was at once touching and heart rending. Maimuna Memon is spectacular. I went on the basis of the amazing Electrolyte and wasn't disappointed.

Great score, great book and gorgeous lighting design. Congrats to everyone involved, especially writer / performer, Maimuna.

The Guardian (4/5 stars) 4 days ago

This semi-autobiographical tale about the impact of a damaging relationship is empathic and impassioned.

Butterwort (5/5 stars) 5 days ago

Great merit has to be recognised to the play, not only for the player-performers’ abilities, but also for bringing on stage the theme of mental health in such an accurate, understanding, and accessible way. It does it without being pedantic nor documentarist, while pushing the aesthetical dimension to that of a dramatic masterpiece.
