Scott+Fletcher,

This is the way to start the day, a bacon butty, a hot coffee & a street-funny play from the prolific Scottish playwright, Doglas Maxwell. It has a cast of two, ex-Emmerdale actress Joanna Tope & the young, up & coming Scott Fletcher. She plays the recently widowed owner of Love Logistics, while Scott is a memer of the warehouse floor. Together they enact the bridging of the class divide through Mrs Love’s newfound enthusiasm for swearing.

At first all the fucks & cunts were a bit much for such an early hour, but they soon became easier to listen to as Mrs Love began her endearing relationship with her worker & this small but not insignificant world of words. It is as if she had grown bored of the Daily Mail’s crossword, & wanted to explore another of the parameters of language. An education in swearing past & present, & packed with funny lines & a sparkling performance by Scott Fletcher, whose body-language had me in stictches, this play easily earns its… FOUR STARS

four stars
