Stefan Golaszewski

Witty, sophisticated monologue speaks of first love

In his first solo show at the Fringe Stefan Golaszewski shares the funny side of falling in love at 18.

As the writer/performer points out, the show describes ‘the massive mind-blowing experience of meeting someone who completely changes you.’ The story involves him meeting a girl in a Walthamstow pub, falling head over heels in love, then discovering something about her, which changes everything. While it’s a true chapter in his life, he insists all names and details have been changed.

Golaszewski’s sophisticated and witty writing speaks to both genders, but the performer admits that the show is geared towards young men. ‘I talk about the ridiculous ideas men can have about love, what 18-year-old boys are like, what idiots men can be.’

So far, audience members have been receptive to Golaszewski’s pearls of wisdom. ‘People have been coming up to me after the show and telling me how much they enjoyed it,’ Golaszewski laughs. ‘I guess everyone has been through something similar!’

Pleasance Courtyard, 556 6550, 2–25 Aug (not 11), 3.15pm, £8.50–£9.50 (£7– £8). Previews until 1 Aug, £5.

One-man show that does exactly what it says on the tin. Our eponymous hero relives the love of his life in moving, gloriously wonky and expressive style. Highly, highly recommended. 'Part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe'
