Half of all marriages end in divorce. And often more than one divorce for conservative or religious people who just want to rub it in the face of same-sex people. Just sayin.
We’ve all had our heart broken at one point in our lives, probably several times, even. And it is with the great loves that we develop a new identity, as part of a couple. But when that great love is lost, who are we then? Do we revert to our former single identity? Who knows, I sure don’t.
In losing love, we are forced to rediscover our identity, what we believe, what we stand for, and what we are as an individual.
Following the critical success of ‘Humpty Dumpty Daddy’, a story of fatherhood and mental health, ‘Loves Me /Loves Me Not’ is JC Clapham’s new storytelling show about finding and losing love, but losing and finding yourself (and all the shit in between).
PRAISE FOR JC & HUMPTY DUMPTY DADDY:
“We need more shows like this and more discussions about this subject.”
“Clapham’s heart-on-his-sleeve approach brings the perfect amount of light to the proceedings, without detracting from his message.”
“An honest, everyday bloke standing before a group of strangers saying life can be a struggle.”
“This is not a comedy. It’s much more important than that.”
– Adelaide Advertiser
“Humpty Dumpty Daddy is a fine work every man ought to see and every woman will appreciate.”
“Uncompromising pathos and a candour that startles and disarms.”
“Overwhelming tenderness behind piercing eyes.”
“A charming yet powerful watch, bravely and brilliantly delivered.”
“He clearly knows that the showing of emotions is a strength. To do what he has done is a demonstration of incredible strength.”
– Vera Poh, theatre reviewer
"Takes dark subject matter and makes it light"
"Poignant & witty"
