Preview: Stupid Cupid by Patch and Punnet
After an intriguing debut work at the end of 2017, youth theatre company Patch and Punnet return to the scene with an all new, original work this August.
Titled Stupid Cupid, the story follows the eponymous god Cupid, as he attempts to reclaim his honour after centuries of failing to matchmake true love. As his mother Venus gives him one last chance to prove his worth (failing which there will be some…terrible consequences), Cupid is left to embark on an impossible quest to matchmake two star-crossed lovers. But even with his divine powers and charming personality, he has one major weakness – a severe addiction to divine booze. Will Cupid succeed in his quest for true love?
