Or How I Learned to Love Myself

After her award-winning performance in This Is Where We Live (Best Play at Fringe NYC 2014, 5 Stars & Critics’ Pick in TimeOut New York), Shaelee Rooke is bringing her new one woman show #Shaedates to the Edinburgh Fringe! 

Shae has a boyfriend but she knows he’s not the one. Then she notices someone else… someone different… someone who’s always been there… 

A tender, surreal and wildly imaginative comedy about a woman who finds true love by dating herself. Directed by Toby Hulse with music by Jack Drewry.

Made with assistance from the Layne Beachley Reach For the Stars Foundation, Arts Council England, and Bristol Old Vic Ferment.
