My Pet, My Love

Edinburgh Festival Fringe

A one-man show about fish, forgetting and the fear of dying single.

Rob is gay
Rob has a pet fish
Rob’s Nonna died
Rob is scared
Rob is losing his memory
Rob wrote a play about it

WINNER: Best Actor – United Solo Theatre Festival, New York  2016

My Pet, My Love weaves together three stories about loss, love and the fears we face. An innocent child discovers death for the first time; an elderly gay couple struggle with the onset of dementia; and a 34-year-old actor reveals his fears from the trivial to the profound.
