Are You A Hopeless Romantic?

By Published May 29, 2017

REFORM Theatre return to Middlesbrough Theatre this June with Hopeless Romantics by Nick Lane, writer of the hit comedies My Favourite Summer and Me & Me Dad.

This brilliantly funny comedy asks ‘In an age of internet dating, speed dating, blind dating and Tinder, isn’t it harder not to find someone these days?’


Alan doesn’t think so. And he should know; aside from the girl with the pigtails and the lisp in Primary School, he’s spent his entire life as a “non-elective celibate.” Or to put it another way, he’s single. Very, very single. Which wouldn’t be a problem, but his sisters are all living romantic dreams with their various successful partners.

So when his judgemental parents invite the family together for an anniversary dinner, Al does something rather reckless – he asks Zoe, a girl on work experience, to pose as his girlfriend for the night. Unfortunately for Al, Zoe’s got romantic problems of her own… amongst other things!

Will it be the start of a beautiful friendship or the end of the world as they know it?

There is only one way to find out…Phone the Box Office now on 01642 81 51 81 and book your tickets for Hopeless Romantics now!

This brilliantly funny comedy opens on Wednesday 7th June and runs until Saturday 10th June at 7.30pm with a Matinee on Saturday 10th June at 2.30pm.
