Inspired by the detritus of romantic relationships, this show explores them all, the broken ones and the ones that remain intact. For now. The audience provides suggestions to inspire scenes by anonymously describing objects that are leftover from previous relationships. The improvisers honour these objects and create stories and scenes inspired by them. Moving, funny and maybe even a little bit cathartic.
