BlackBox: Rosie Wilby: The Conscious Uncoupling

BlackBox: Rosie Wilby: The Conscious Uncoupling

In an increasingly serially monogamous society, we all face the possibility of more serious breakups in a lifetime than ever before – many of these
happening in January.

In a brand new work-in-progress, Radio 4 regular Rosie Wilby combines comedy, solo theatre, memoir, science, old love letters, breakup emails and stories gathered from friends to investigate the cumulative impact of these traumatic separations on our emotional wellbeing and sense of self. 

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 Sunshine Mind, would we eventually decide against it as they do?

Previous shows have been described as …

‘Intelligent, honest and entertaining’ **** Remote Goat
