In a brand new comedy and storytelling show, Radio 4 and festival regular Rosie Wilby interweaves a rich, romantic narrative about two people connecting over a shared love of Richard Hawley music and the London skyline with their eventual breakup emails and the visits of three ghosts from our romantic future, past and present.
Although she never thought she’d be inspired by Chris and Gwyneth, is ‘conscious uncoupling’ the way forward? If we could erase our past loves as Kate Winslet and Jim Carrey’s characters attempt to do in the film Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, would we eventually decide against it as they do?
The Conscious Uncoupling premiered at Tristan Bates Theatre First Festival 2016 – a performance which prompted London’s Southbank Centre to book it for their Festival Of Love. The show was shortlisted, via a public vote, for Funny Women Best Show 2016 and is directed by Colin Watkeys (Jack Klaff, Ken Campbell, Claire Dowie).

‘…a beautifully intimate and thought-provoking gem… one of the highlights of this year’s Brighton Fringe’ Remote Goat ★★★★★
‘…tender and exquisite’ Everything Theatre ★★★★
‘…a very honest show that manages to celebrate the happy years of a relationship while being mystified by that process of disentanglement’ The Reviews Hub ★★★★
‘…from hilarious to heart-wrenching’ Female Arts ★★★★

Rosie has appeared on BBC Radio 4’s Loose Ends, Summer Nights, Four Thought, Midweek, The Human Zoo and Woman’s Hour and at festivals including Glastonbury, Secret Garden Party, Green Man, Larmer Tree and Latitude. She was a finalist at Funny Women 2006 and Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2007 and she’s been touring award-winning solo shows and steadily building a word-of-mouth army of fans ever since. Her writing has been published in The Sunday Times, The Guardian, The Independent, New Statesman and more. Her first book Is Monogamy Dead will be published by Accent Press in July 2017. She co-hosts Radio Diva on Resonance FM alongside Heather Peace and has presented for BBC Sussex and Surrey. Her award-winning show The Science Of Sex was programmed by New York City’s Fresh Fruit Festival 2013. She has also performed in Los Angeles and at Sydney Mardi Gras.
