Review by Amy Yorston

Exquisitely performed and simply told, Beans on Toast is a love story that is entirely believable and moving.

Three men and three women play the different facets of Scott and Jen at different stages of their relationship and at different ages.

With live music, occasional light audience interaction and posters held up to name each scene, there is a deliberately homespun feel which brings warmth to the piece.

The addition of fairy lights, bunting and photos placed on each seat also cast a welcoming sense into the room.

It is an absorbing story and a refreshingly honest glimpse into a modern relationship.
