Sh!T I’m in Love With You Again is one woman’s tell-all about love, encompassing the wonderful, the horrible and everything in between.
Should you see it?
Rachelle Elie (accompanied by Luke Jackson on guitar) gives a charismatic performance as she shamelessly talks – and sings – us through what love can really look like. We see the electrifying beginning of her new romance, the disillusionment of parenthood, and the ultimate dissatisfaction and boredom with her husband. This play doesn’t shy away from telling it exactly like it is, nasty name calling and all.
But make no mistake: this play is neither depressing nor emotionally heavy. It’s quite the opposite, in fact. Elie’s tongue-in-cheek humour and energetic stage presence (coupled with the intimate venue space) make this a light and entertaining production despite its brutal honesty.
All in all, it is an inspiring story that flaunts the relationship hiccups many of us try desperately to hide, reminding us that, even if your relationship goes to sh!t, there’s always a chance you can fall in love with each other all over again.
But that’s just my opinion and I’d love to know what you think. Did you appreciate how the subject matter was portrayed? Did you find it entertaining and humorous? Join the discussion and tell me what you think in the comments below!
