Love in the time of Corona
Jake only wants one thing from women. He uses dating apps to hook up with a different woman every night and he definitely doesn't do relationships. When the lock-down brings an abrupt halt to his hedonistic lifestyle he finds himself in the unusual situation of striking up a platonic friendship with Lauren. Over the course of their Zoom conversations, Lauren begins to challenge Jake's priorities and values.
Written and Directed by Ian Dixon Potter
Performed by Ivan Comisso
Video editing by Howard White
Original music composed and performed by Neil Thompson
"A timely and relevant production. Comisso puts in an engaging performance.
In a timespan of a few months, Jake has become a different person."
★★★★ London Theatre 1
"Comisso is very much “up close and personal” with the viewer at all times. His natural exuberant gestures add to his personality as he performs. Once past the sleaziness of his mind, Jake’s evolution in the actor’s hands becomes compelling, and leaves the audience hoping things work out as the boy engages the mind of a more mature male"
"It's very much down to the performance that the work feels fresh, and the second half in which a new perspective is introduced assists greatly the balance of originality which would make an audience watch. Worth engaging with, as it has plenty to say about the joy of a deeper one-to-one relationship in economical capsule form"
