Look at all those couples. Which one will leave. Which one will run. Which one is cheating on the other. Which one will die first. Him. Him. Her. Him.
Ross & Rachel tells the mind-bending, heart-breaking story of what happens when a couple that was always meant to be together, gets together. And stays together.
In this disquieting duologue for one performer, Olivier-nominee and Critics Circle Most Promising Playwright winner James Fritz (Four Minutes, Twelve Seconds, Hampstead Theatre/West End) takes an unflinching look at the myths of modern love.
“Fritz’s script has a streak of mischief a mile wide…a virtuosic piece of writing, playful, post-modern and devastatingly serious, all at once.” – TIME OUT
“A startling piece of new writing.” – THE STAGE
“A fiercely sharp yet tender anatomy of the lie of love.” – EXEUNT
“Quite a thing of brilliance.” – Andrew Haydon, Postcards from the Gods
