Ache is a fateful comedy about two thirty-somethings trying to find their way through modern love, materialism and the Wellington dating-drought.
At a time when we are promised happiness with the swipe of a card or the swig of a bottle, true joy and connection seems almost impossible.
At crossroads and rooftop gardens, fate decides to surprise them. At last, connection, chemistry, charisma. He’s perfect, she’s gorgeous. Only timing’s not as kind – he’s taken. Is it just not meant to be or will she push timing aside and take fate into her own hands?
Achingly-funny and heart-breakingly sad, Ache is a modern story of love, timing and seizing the day.
Don’t miss this WELLINGTON PREMIERE, finally on our stage after its SOLD-OUT season at Christchurch’s Court Theatre.
