Award-winning team Jonathan Young and Faith Brandon return to the stage at VAULT Festival for four performances only, offering the perfect Valentine’s date – a madcap, true-life saga of obsession, crushing despair and salvation by bath bombs.
Love Me Or I’ll Kill Myself is an honest, bittersweet look at Cupid’s dark side and the lengths we will go to not to lose ‘The One’ — even if the cost is losing your own mind. Whether you’re a seasoned Lothario, yet to taste your first kiss or ever experienced the pain of impossible love, Faith’s here to help you feel less alone this Valentine’s… by falling madly in love with you. And praying you’ll reciprocate.
‘Witty and woeful, an exhilarating freight train of pain and hope.’ ★★★★ Evening Standard
‘I laughed, I cried, I spat out my drink! Truly hilarious and deeply moving.’ ★★★★★ Funny Women
‘Perfectly timed comedy… an asset to contemporary devised work.’ ★★★★ London Theatre Reviews
Love Me or I’ll Kill Myself (LMOIKM) combines perfectly timed physical comedy with painful vulnerability in a cathartic, life-affirming encounter between Faith and her audience. She shares her real-life quest for lasting love in exotic Barcelona where she falls for tall, dark Juan. Is he the man of her dreams, or a reckless Don Juan, pulling her towards despair, madness and suicide? This delightfully deranged rom-com subverts the genre’s well-worn tropes with several brilliant twists.
Performer and co-creator Faith Brandon says, ‘LMOIKM highlights the notion of ‘The One’ as dated and dangerous for our mental health. The show takes audiences on a journey to the absurd lengths I went to for the sake of love, ultimately leading me to a really dark place. It’s both utterly mad and yet so relatable. I want my audience to go away feeling less alone, less crazy and throughly entertained.’
