So what is the Break-Up Diet?
It’s not a musical, drama, comedy, tragedy or a thriller. It doesn’t fit into a tidy box. It’s a ride of lies, love, panic attacks, and audacity mixed in with some dry slices of Brit wit. Alternative songs soundscape the monologues and punctuate the endings of scenes. The original film element allows you to dream and have a moment to ponder. The Break-Up Diet is unique. It pushes boundaries and you may feel uncomfortable from time to time because chances are you have lied in a relationship. Either to yourself or to your partner.
It was first performed as a forty-minute experimental piece on a short tour with Charles Spearin (Broken Social Scene) in 2018. It debuted as a full-length production at the Toronto Fringe Festival in 2019 where it was awarded the Adams Award for best script. It received 5-star reviews from Now Magazine and was a top-six pick in the Toronto Star. The production then travelled to the Edmonton Fringe and played at The Paradise Theatre in Toronto in Jan 2020.
Then …..well…
The Break-Up Diet is back aptly as a solo show, performing at The Theatre Centre to raise funds for Edinburgh Fringe 2024.
