My Last Five Girlfriends


World Premiere

U.K. | 87 MINUTES | English |


Comedy, Romantic Comedy

After his latest failed relationship, Duncan has hit emotional rock bottom. He just can't understand what, or who, has caused all of his relationships to fail. Was it something he did… or didn't do? In a final attempt to find out where it all went wrong, Duncan takes a ride through the memories of his last five relationships. He's pretended not to care about ex-boyfriends that haven't quite disappeared, disastrously attempted to give fashion advice, and even been the first to utter those three special words—nothing seems to work out, but that's all about to change.

Though its themes of love and relationships are as common and old as art itself, My Last Five Girlfriends is anything but ordinary. Julian Kemp's adaptation of Alain De Botton's international best seller On Love is a unique and wonderful story about love and our addiction to it. Its clever and innovative structure, like relationships themselves, can veer into unexpected places. Brendan Patricks handles Duncan's roller-coaster journey with delicious wit and charm, and each of his five leading ladies bring interesting idiosyncratic nuances to their characters in this poignant and whimsical tale.
