is a short, humorous poke at the extreme ends of online dating, written and directed by Natasha Chandra , the founder of Namashkar. Those who have been 'in the scene' will no doubt recognise some of the elements of hope, desperation, embarrassment and 'I wish I'd never said "yes" to that!' experiences. The White Bear is a small, intimate space bringing the cast and audience very close together.

This closeness works as the play focuses on the desperate experiences of Her, 23 ( Ruth Marsden ) dating a series of 5 very different various versions of Him, 25 (all well played by Kieran Iyer ). The experience of dating the extremely socially awkward, a psychopath and a sex obsessed fitness fanatic in one lifetime is unusual, but the common elements are those we can all relate to, and cringe over. Those who I know who have tried online dating instantly recognize elements within both characters.

In the background runs The Universe ( Sónia Martins ) who fills in as anything from cosmic awareness to station staff and waiter. The part is handled with dry wit and a dose of sarcasm as The Universe tries, and fails, to guide Her away from appalling choices.[BREAK]

The material is handled in a light-hearted manner as a series of vignettes, with many moments causing laughter among the audience and no one left checking their watches.

The play can be followed with #InfiniteLink on twitter.
