Audience reactions so far:

“Fabulous, quirky and multi-dimensional. Very entertaining and brilliantly acted.” 


“Painful and funny with a twist of despair for the still singles looking for love.”

In 30 years, the cultural change in courtship has been vast. Today, overwhelmed by technology, are we losing sight of what human connection truly is? 


Join Polly as she navigates the perils of love in the digital age. Armed with all the latest dating apps and sites, Polly rides the waves of players, lovers, weirdos – and everything in between.

Based entirely on real-life experiences, this hilarious, romping, multimedia exposé of modern dating scrutinises the deeper, brutal side of love and life, challenging our preconceptions of women and dating, sex and autonomy. 

Hot on the heels of #MeToo and diving unapologetically into the darker sides of love and life, Lobster unpicks women’s experiences of modern dating with careful and incisive observation.
