Five years ago, James met the love of his life. Two years later, they broke up. This is James’s story of falling in love and landing broken hearted and everything in between.
It’s also about him being Best Man of Honour at Sarah and Emma’s wedding.
And it’s the story of a quest: to find the right words to make sense of love. A hilarious, heart-lifting story of romance, despair, and, above all, always, friendship from one of the UK’s most loved storytellers.
‘A master storyteller… with wit and charm in abundance… a touching and excellently funny story about being unable to express one’s feelings with a singular word.’ ★★★★ WhatsOnStage
‘A triumph… will find a way to break (and mend) your heart.’ ★★★★★ Broadway Baby
‘Stunning… storytelling at its finest: beautiful, simple, funny, and utterly engaging.’ ★★★★★ Reviews Hub
