Reasons You Should(n't) Love Me starts its major national tour at Live Theatre

We are thrilled to welcome winner of the Women’s Prize for Playwriting 2020, Amy Trigg’s remarkable debut play Reasons You Should(n’t) Love Me to our Quayside venue from Wednesday 7 to Saturday 10 September 2022 as the first venue of its major national tour.

Reasons You Should(n’t) Love Me follows Juno who was born with spina bifida and is now clumsily navigating her twenties amidst street healers, love, loneliness and the feeling of being an unfinished project. Semi-autobiographical and based on experiences from Amy’s own past, audiences will find themselves relating to this very funny, engaging and universal story of ups and downs, dating for millennials and learning to love yourself.

Presented by Paines Plough in association with Women’s Prize for Playwriting, 45 North and Kiln Theatre, the play is written and performed by Amy Trigg and directed by Charlotte Bennett. The play sold out on its first run at London’s Kiln Theatre in 2021 to rave reviews. 

Reasons You Should(n’t) Love Me is a super fun, heart-warming, one woman, joyous, stand-up style show which certainly packs a punch.
