SW1PE by Marc Blake, Monday 3rd July 2017
Stage reading of SW1PE is a one act, two-handed play about modern online dating relationships.
The first part examines the desire, the nerves and the lies we tell ourselves and others in an attempt to ensnare a partner. The second translates those truths and lies to the end stages of a relationship.
