The London Society & Wonderlust Theatre Company present…I Heart London
A new monologue from Wonderlust theatre company.
“Tate Modern, East London Food Festival, pub quiz. This isn’t Freshers’ Week. I’m nearly 30 and I work a 55 hour week.”
Young, professional, single, Emma has escaped her small hometown in Yorkshire for the bright lights of London and now she’s living the dream: a cosmopolitan house-share, a forward-thinking office team, speed-dating, parties, Turkish food at 4am, a city of young hopefuls from every corner of the globe.
But through her glossy magazine-copy, a darker picture emerges: of an increasingly alienating city, consumed by corporate culture; its mirage of opportunity forever just beyond the reach of a generation led to expect the world at its feet.
Written and directed by Sophie Ivatts
Cast: Louisa Hollway
“Wonderlust is a small theatre company with a big horizon. It is run by director Sophie Ivatts, who is currently an associate director for the RSC. They are committed to creating new work that takes both artists and audiences on a journey.
