A deliberately uncomfortable play exploring the failure of our relationships to live up to the ideals of movies comes to Warwick Arts Centre next week.

Tonight I’m Gonna Be The New Me is based on the real relationship Tim Cowbury and Jess Latowicki, the founders of production company Made In China. During the show, Latowicki puts words into the mouths of various audience members, asking questions and feeding the answers. The audience is put in the position of judging whether the show is all scripted, whether lines have genuinely missed, and to whom the power belongs.

The Guardian’s Lyn Gardner said of the play: “This is slippery and teasing, murderously entertaining and very, very uncomfortable to watch. Just as it is supposed to be. Because love is always a bit of a performance.”

The show takes place on Tuesday April 26. Full-price tickets cost £13. Call 024 7652 4524 to book or visit www.warwickartscentre.co.uk/whats-on/2016/tonight-im-gonna-be-the-new-me/ for more information.
