Force of Habit

28 March - 1 April 2023, 7.30 pm

There should be a siren when love starts to leave.

But it’s not like that. It’s a daily creep.

Watch John and Martha as they fall in love and prepare for a life of joy together. Things are good, but never quite perfect, and the two lovers are trying their darndest but they can’t quite seem to get on the same page. Until one day, destiny happens.

Kibo Productions present their first show of the year, a bittersweet romantic comedy from the pen of Roz Wyllie, starring May López and Michael Hajiantonis, and directed by Leo Bacica.

This production is a partnership with Solace Women’s Aid.

The play runs 70 minutes without an interval.

This is a 16+ show. It contains some explicit language and sex references.

May is a long-standing member of the Kibo family with Force of Habit being the third play she performs at the Barons Court Theatre. Previously, she starred in Before I Talked to Shoes by Alina Rios and Ducks by Hannah Kennedy.

May’s love for new writing has led her to perform in scratch nights across London such as The Platform in The Bread and Roses or the Pub Theatre Festival in Ye Olde Rose and Crown. She is currently also touring around the UK with the play Kindness: A Legacy of the Holocaust, a piece based on the real testimonial of a Holocaust survivor.

May trained in Musical Theatre at Coco Comin in Barcelona before moving to London and specializing in Meisner technique, with The Salon: Collective.

May also holds a degree in Philosophy by Birkbeck College, part of the University of London.
