Straight from Adelaide Fringe, award-winning ‘Lovecraft (Not the Sex Shop in Cardiff)’ is a one- woman science comedy-musical about the neuroscience of love and loneliness.
Written and performed by Carys Eleri, this is an outrageously fun and joyous show with some seriously entertaining science chucked in. Carys will take you on a romp through her formative years; lust, life and loneliness complete with an 80s power-ballad to a Tinder profile.
‘Charismatic and vulnerable, Eleri weaves jokes, music and insights from multi disciplines to weave a new kind of magic’ NEW SCIENTIST
‘If Flight of the Conchords was reimagined as a one woman show, maybe these are the songs they would come up with.’
Combining heartfelt tales of relationship highs, lows and the downright confusing, this personal show is told with plenty of sass, chocolate, hugs and bangin’ tunes too.
Come and discover how love works within all of us, why it makes us do crazy things and why hugging is the answer.
Screw you, loneliness epidemic – Carys has you by the balls.
