About Book

Do you know how they get animals to breed in captivity? They put them in the same cage.

One moment you're colleagues, and then it's Friday night drinks, a quick grope, and you're an item. When Tom and Amy get together, they find themselves living in each other's pockets. But all too soon the ghosts of relationships past begin to interfere with the here and now.

A comedy about love, loss and laminating machines, My Romantic History premiered at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, in August 2010 in a Bush Theatre and Sheffield Theatres production, in association with Birmingham Rep.
