John has a boyfriend but he's just met the girl of his dreams and he's going to have to choose. Hearts are on the line and everyone's ready for a fight in Mike Bartlett's razor-sharp comic drama. Winner of a 2010 Olivier Award, Bartlett's play on the ruthless pursuit of happiness has been an international sensation and is the break-through work from the writer of Doctor Foster, King Charles III and Love, Love, Love among many others.
