The last night of a dysfunctional relationship precedes its one-night stand beginnings in this bittersweet heartbreak comedy.
Tender, awkward and painfully funny, I Lost My Virginity to Chopin’s Nocturne in B-Flat Minor probes the murky line between devotion and destruction in a modern relationship.
Chopin is a bittersweet comedy which focuses in on the disparity between classes and how much of your self identity you would comprise for someone you love. Its fresh look at ‘privilege’, challenges how this is defined by both gender and upbringing, highlighting darker elements of toxic masculinity and the unhealthy nature of a dependent relationship.
The piece explores a modern relationship being pulled apart by the divides of the class system and treads a murky line between devotion and destruction. It explores the politics of both the middle class and the working class, pitting them against each other to interrogate privilege, the gender divide and stereotypes.
