About the event

When we can have sex whenever we want, with whomever we want, why settle for a normal relationship? With the promise of fresh excitement just a swipe away, is Kat’s long-term lover really her lifelong dream?

One Life Stand is a late-night search for intimacy across a hyper-connected, hypersexual city, exposing the loneliness sometimes found in modern relationships, where the expectations of love and lust are ever changing.

Written by Eve Nicol with music by James Frewer and Honeyblood, this is the latest gig theatre production from the company behind the award-winning, Edinburgh Fringe sell out show, All We Ever Wanted Was Everything.

Middle Child are a Hull-based company creating gig theatre that brings people together for a good night out with big ideas. They tell untold stories which capture the electrifying moment when the beat drops, mixing original live music with bold new writing.

Check out reviews for their previous, sell out production All We Ever Wanted Was Everything

“Middle Child claim on their website: “We will set fire to your expectations of what a night at the theatre can be.” Yeah, right. But they really do. This is theatre as Hadron Collider experiment: a slamming-together of a play and a gig” **** – The Telegraph

“Middle Child really smash it with a superb piece of gig theatre… combines music and storytelling in an outrageously entertaining fashion” – Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

“Glorious… a raucous, riotous 75 minutes of storytelling, shot through with pop, poetry and politics…marshalled with magnetic vim by the mercurial Marc Graham, the coolest frontman at the festival” **** – The Stage
