Sat 8 April
Be part of the audience as award-winning comedian Rosie Wilby shares funny, bizarre and poignant tales of heartbreak and recovery with special guests in a live recording of her acclaimed podcast. The Breakup Monologues has been recommended by Chortle, The Observer, Metro, TimeOut, Psychologies and many more and was nominated for a British Podcast Award.
Since launching the show a few years ago, Rosie has been obsessively researching the psychology of love and has even been dubbed the ‘Queen of Breakups’ by BBC Radio 4. The Breakup Monologues is now also available as a book combining humour, heartache and science to investigate how on earth to actually stay in a relationship in the modern age of ghosting, breadcrumbing and Tinder. It’s been described by Red Magazine as “a gem of a book”, and you can get your hands on a signed copy during the interval.
