    Dirty Great Love Story in (Exactly) 250 Words

    Dirty Great Love Story is a great play, that doesn't quite fit the West End. Currently playing at the quaint Arts Theatre, the show is a love story, told by two actors (Felix Scott and Ayesha Antoine) through what is essentially staged poetry.

     I always enjoy seeing something a bit different, and Dirty Great Love Story is certainly that. The poetic narrative is witty and engaging, the characters are lovable, dynamic and extremely well-played – and the show flies past with no lulls. The style of the production takes a bit of getting used to – the story of Richard Marsh and Katie Bonna is narrated, instead of being acted out – but the show still stays engaging and entertaining throughout. There are some brilliant lines written into the script, and a lot of funny moments.

    Dirty Great Love Story is great fun, but I can't help but feel that it doesn't quite do enough for a West End show. The show is short, simple and small-scale – fine for a local production, but perhaps not if you're travelling to London and paying £30 – £50 to see a top-of-the-range production.

    All in all, Dirty Great Love Story is a good show – just not a fantastic one. If you like poetry and you want to see something that's totally unique, you will enjoy this show. But if you want to go to the West End and see a 'big' show, you may be a little underwhelmed by the production
