PREVIEW: Death, dating and I do – the inspiring & funny story of woman who re-found love

Picture Submitted


Cancer killed her husband, she had her first one-night stand & now she’s marrying a British accountant. When life gives you lemons, screw it, learn to play ukulele!

In her new solo show Death, Dating and I Do, New York comedic actor Paige Jennifer Barr will have you crying with laughter in a hilariously dark journey through her husband’s long battle with cancer, her shocking re-entry into dating as a young naive widow, and finding the other love of her life by accident.

She’s the power house who got JJ Abrams to send her husband the new Star Trek movie six months before it came out (days before he died); the delicate soul that had to Google the phrases  ‘Netflix and chill’ & ‘dick slapping’ to find out what they meant.

Even if you have not experienced epic loss, you can identify with this sweetly optimistic, quirky, funny lady, who finds herself overwhelmed and often in way over her head.

Re-entering the dating pool after two decades is not for the faint-hearted and this observational comedy takes a fresh look at the bizarreness of dating in the internet age (& porn apps?).

This solo show is simply funny and heartfelt, complete with original music played on her ukulele.

Just bring tissues… and an appreciation for dating apps.
