THE ACTUAL ONE is Isy Suttie’s brilliantly funny new show about that moment in your late 20s when you suddenly realise that all your mates are growing up without you – featuring stories, songs and readings from the new book of the same name.
The invisible deal that Isy had made – to prolong growing up for as long as possible – was all in her head. Suddenly everyone around her is into mortgages, farmers’ markets and nappies, rather than skinny-dipping in the sea and sambuca sessions on rope-swings. When her dearest friend advises Isy that the next guy she meets will be not just The One, but The Actual One, Isy decides to delay the onset of adulthood for just a bit longer until a bet with her mum results in a mad scramble to find a boyfriend within a month.
