A vaudeville lament on love in the time of Tinder.

Modern dating is a minefield. The all-rules-but-no-rules enigma of contemporary courting is near impossible to navigate – even with a smartphone.

Presented by The Butterfly Club, Cell, Block Tango: Showtunes on Modern Dating is a cabaret about the perils and pitfalls of app ‘romance’.

Writer and producer Louise Baxter weaves original monologue around sassy showtunes from favourites such as Sweet Charity, Cabaret, Gypsy and Chicago.

You'll hear stories from survivors of “benching”, the Friendzone, and an unsolicited dick-pic blitz, and tales of woe from a hopeless romantic swiping for something real.

You could even bring a date.
