'I dunno how it happened,But I like you. I don't know where it came from,But I... Need to stop saying I like you.'

Eve's eyes are green like guacamole, she has posh hair, a freckle on her chin (it might be chocolate), and when she puts her hand on Elle's arm...

Bloody Elle - A Gig Musical is a heart-warming and belly-achingly funny story about falling in love for the very first time, stuffed full of stomach-flipping, time-stopping moments, touches, glances, kisses. Written and originally performed by Lauryn Redding, this one-person gig musical, set to an original score, was first performed at the Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester, in June 2021. It was directed by the theatre's Joint Artistic Director Bryony Shanahan and co-produced with Rebel Productions.

It was revived at the Royal Exchange in June 2022, before transferring to the Traverse Theatre for the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
