Dirty Great Love Story

To be true to Dirty Great Love Story
Writing in rhyme should be manda-tory
Time to give some rhyming couplets a chance
(Sending my apologies in advance)

One girl, by the name of Katie Bonna
Likes her drink, bit of a primadonna
And one boy, by the name of Richard Marsh
What happens to him, is more than just harsh

Silly Cece slapper at a Hen Do
Miss Bonna avoids spewing on her shoe
Ayesha Antoine plays them both with wit
Full of emotion, showing real raw grit

‘What a knob!’ Westie shouts out to the stag
Rich on the dance floor, looking for a shag
Matt Priest, a top toff hunk who knows he’s hot
All played by the charming, young Felix Scott

Dancing floors, club loos and breakfast in bed
D-G Love Story captures it A to Zed
Lovers of comedy Hugh Grant rom com
Will rant and rave that this show is the bomb

Dirty Loves set designer, Camilla Clark
And Lighting man Mark Howard create a spark
Bulbs hang from the ceiling, fall to the stage
Props are used to lift story from the page

Sounds positive, any moments of doubt?
The rhyming does tend to dip in and out
Sometimes in couplets, then often nothing
A rhyme and rhythm down they come crashing

From Fringe, New York on to London West End
This is a show, we fully recommend
A perfect cure for all those midweek blues
Grab a friend and a large red glass of booze
