The Love of Stationery
  • Brighton Fringe

I collect bags of sugar from cafes and restaurants I'm in. I have a big collection. Often I forget that I've taken them with me home and somehow, if you apply time and pressure, they have the tendency to explode ... 'The Love of Stationery' is a one-woman dark comedy exploring the innermost thoughts of 'Woman'- a collector of common things. She works in a stationery shop. Orderly displays of writing materials, and collecting irregular verbs, are her keenest passions. But one day an attractive man walks in to buy an eraser... and its love at first sight.At least for her.Plans are devised to land this man, to make him hers. Her dreams are shattered though when he is spotted talking to Deanne... funnier, smarter and more beautiful than Woman. Deanne cannot win. She cannot. Looks like Woman has some erasing of her own to do... A show that leaves us rooting for the underdog, while vowing to buy our stationary online in future...
