DAVID GREIG & GORDON McINTYRE
It rains. People get hot and sweaty. The sex is rubbish. Love is anything but easy.
Helena is a divorce lawyer with a taste for other people’s husbands. She’s in a bar sipping overpriced sav blanc. She’s been stood up by Mr. Wrong. Again. Bob’s a total shambles, a two-bit petty crim working for a gangster called Big Tiny Tam. He’s nursing a beer and reading Dostoevsky. She’s totally out of his league; he’s not her type at all. They absolutely should not sleep together. Ever. Which is why they do.
And so begins their legendary lost weekend; a wild 24 hour spending spree in which our think-me Bonnie and Clyde step out of their shit lives and reinvent themselves in a haze of bleary magic. This is Bob and Helena’s excellent adventure.
Stacked with rough and tumble romantic comedy and rebellious abandon, this is a lo-fi indie musical for people who don’t like musicals. There will be no high kicks and absolutely no jazz hands.
Midsummer is pure outrageous joy.
Exhilarating. You float out laughing as if you've swallowed sunshine on a spoon.
A joyous romp.
Excuse me, would you like to come back to my place and have extremely wild, uninhibited sex with me?
I'm supposed to be having adventures - I'm supposed to be having experiences, right?
