When we can have sex whenever we want, with whomever we want, why settle for a normal relationship?

Kit and Kat are on a break, but Kit doesn’t know it yet. With the promise of fresh excitement just a swipe away, is Kat’s long-term lover really her lifelong dream?

One Life Stand is a gig with a story about the search for sex and intimacy in a world full of distractions, exposing the loneliness sometimes found in modern relationships. Will Kit and Kat stay together, or will the allure of sex elsewhere prove too strong?

Written by Eve Nicol with music by James Frewer and Honeyblood, this is the latest show from the award-winning company behind All We Ever Wanted Was Everything.
