Perfect Match, the first of three world premieres commissioned for Watford Palace Theatre’s innovative Ideal World Season runs until 19th October. Each of the plays offers a response to the impact of the digital world on our lives, exploring themes such as love, identity, body image and morality in relation to the rapid technological changes to our culture.
Perfect Match is a wise, warm and very funny comedy by Gary Owen (Mrs Reynolds & the Ruffian and We That Are Left), that asks if it’s possible to find our perfect partner, or whether we’re better off leaving it to chance.
Joe and Anna have been together for nine years, and as far as he is concerned will stay together for another ninety. But the minute they set a date for the wedding, Anna panics. A new dating agency promises to scan the online persona of everyone in the world, guaranteeing to find your soul mate. Anna looks at Joe and wonders – can he really be her perfect match?
The cast includes Tom Berish, Hugo Bolton, Kelly Hotten , Ken Nwosu and Eva-Jane Willis and they are directed by Brigid Larmour, Artistic Director and Chief Executive of Watford Palace Theatre. She has directed for the Palace: Equally Divided, Mother Goose by Andrew Pollard, Alan Ayckbourn’s Time of My Life and Absent Friends, Gary Owen’s We That Are Left and Mrs Reynolds and the Ruffian, Shakespeare’s As You Like It, Charlotte Keatley’s My Mother Said I Never Should and Von Ribbentrop’s Watch by Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran.
Perfect Match by Gary Owens is at Watford Palace Theatre from 19th September until 19th October.
