Wasted Love and Part A - St. Paul’s Church

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

FOLLOWING the success of Gutter Press and their Musical Theatre Blind Date night earlier this year, Iris Theatre is presenting two new musical theatre productions at St Paul’s Church, Covent Garden – Wasted Love (Sunday, November 25) and Part A (Friday, December 7, 2012).

Wasted Love, a comic and touching story following a self-help group for those unlucky in love, charts the unpredictable route from heartbreak to healing, from anger to revenge, from stalking to serial sex addiction.

Wasted Love was written by the award-winning Kielty brothers, John and Gerry, and was borne out of the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland’s New Musical Developments scheme. It went on to become a five-star, sell-out at the 2011 Edinburgh Fringe, and won ‘Best Lyrics’ at the Musical Theatre Matters Awards.

Tickets: £10.

Time: 8pm.

Running Time: 90 minutes.

Part A, which enjoyed a sell-out 5 star run at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe 2012, is a debut offering from recent graduates Freya Smith and Jack Williams.

Take a house party, add indiscretion, awkwardness, and a pinch of self reflection; then mix it up and set the sparkling result to music.

Part A offers audiences a comic and honest depiction of the modern lives and loves of young twenty-somethings living in a shared house a bit like yours.

Tickets: £10.

Time: 7.30pm.

Running Time: 90 minutes.

Formed in 2007, Iris Theatre is a registered charity dedicated to supporting new and emerging talent, and is based at the world famous St Paul’s Church (a.k.a. the Actors’ Church) in Covent Garden.
