The Women’s Prize for Playwriting, Paines Plough, 45North and Kiln Theatre present Reasons You Should(n’t) Love Me, London


Price: £15-£32.50


Amy Trigg, a young white woman in her twenties in a wheelchair, wearing a sparkly jacket, has a big smile on her face and hands in the air. Behind her are an array of colourful balloons. To the left, the title reads Reasons You Should(n't) Love Me, written and performed by Amy Trigg. Directed by Charlotte Bennett

‘For a long time I didn’t know how it’d work. Or what I’d be able to feel. People would ask me if I could have sex and I’d feign shock and act wildly offended whilst secretly wanting to grab them by the shoulders and be like “I don’t know, Janet!”’

Juno was born with spina bifida and is now clumsily navigating her twenties amidst street healers, love, loneliness – and the feeling of being an unfinished project.

Winner of The Women’s Prize for Playwriting 2020, Amy Trigg’s remarkable debut play Reasons You Should(n’t) Love Me is a hilarious, heart-warming tale about how shit our wonderful lives can be.

Wheelchair access, Access Pricing, Captioned Performance, 7 June – 7.30pm, Audio Described Performance, 10 June – 7.30pm


Kiln Theatre, 269 Kilburn High Road, London, UK, NW6 7JR
