An hour of award-winning heart-breaking comedy storytelling about love, loss and bad poetry from Ms Samantha Mann.
When her best friend Angela goes looking for love in South America, leaving her beloved rabbit behind, Ms Samantha Mann starts to think about how much she has missed out on by closing herself off from meaningful relationships. Taking us on a journey that tells of hilarious awkwardness and infuriating missed connections, Ms Samantha Mann reveals the hole left by the death of someone very close to her and her plans for her new life as a Spoken Word Artist.
