A cinematic rom-com live on stage!
This fizzy concoction takes the classic ingredients of romantic comedy – love, humour, coincidence and fantasy- and serves them up with a surprisingly touching twist…
Strawberries in January is a biting, heart-warming comedy about four romantically challenged singletons who stumble through contemporary Montréal in search of love.
If only life could be like the movies!
Originally written in Québec French the play won the Masque Award for Best Original Script. This version premiered at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh in 2006 and was last seen at Cygnet Theatre in 2014.
