Modern romance sure is tricky, but Cupid reckons they've got this whole dating thing figured out. Each night we will bring you two lovers, follow them over the course of their first dates and, with help from the Cupid and the audience, maybe we’ll figure out how this love thing really works. These are the heartwarming and wholesome, queer love stories 2021 truly needs.
Cupid’s Guide to Modern Romance was originally performed as an entry in the improv competition Late Night Knife Fight, under the team name Rom- Comrades. The team was the audience favourite and the winners that night, returning to headline the next month to a sold-out crowd. We've had a bit of a glow-up, and now the Rom-Comrades are excited to welcome you to the premiere of their full length show.
