Written by Eve Nicol
Music by James Frewer and Honeyblood


One Life Stand, the new show by the award winning Middle Child theatre company comes to Arts Centre Washington on Thursday 4 October as part of a regional tour.

Kit and Kat are on a break, but Kit doesn’t know it yet. With the promise of fresh excitement just a swipe away, is Kat’s long-term lover really her lifelong dream?

One Life Stand is a late-night search for intimacy across a city obsessed with sex and screens, where the expectations of lust and the limits of love are ever-changing.

Written by Eve Nicol’s with music by James Frewer and Honeyblood, One Life Stand is Eve’s first professional commission and the latest production from the company behind the award-winning All We Ever Wanted Was Everything.

One Life Stand has already performed at the Paines Plough Roundabout at this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe, where it received four-star reviews from The Stage, The Scotsman, The List and A Younger Theatre, among other publications.

The production stars Tanya Loretta Dee (Boots, Offside) as Kat, Edward Cole (Ten Storey Love Song) as Kit and Anna Mitchelson (Weekend Rockstars) as Momo.

Eve Nicol is a playwright and director from Glasgow who has worked with the National Theatre of Scotland, Lyceum Theatre, Edinburgh and Tron Theatre, Glasgow. She is the artistic director of Heroes Theatre, with whom she’s created theatre for fields, festivals, pools, pubs and stages across Scotland. One Life Stand is her professional debut as a writer.

James Frewer is a composer and musical director who has worked with Middle Child on seven previous productions, including Weekend Rockstars, I Hate Alone and All We Ever Wanted Was Everything and Mercury Fur.

Honeyblood are Glaswegian duo Stina Tweeddale and Cat Myers, whose 2016 album, Babes Never Die, was described by The Skinny magazine as “peppered with catchy choruses and heroic riffs… with sing-along moments galore.”
