All's Well That Ends

17 - 21 October 2023, 7.30 pm
Do you remember the day you got married?
Did you make promises to each other? So did we. We made a lot of promises . . . Did you see them through?'
You’re invited to the divorce party of Daria and Radu, two of your close friends who are splitting up.
Together, we’ll toast to what was and could have been as we follow their investigation into where love was lost. But will going back through their time together divide them even further, or will memories of the good times make them question their choice?
Witty and fast-paced, All’s Well That Ends is a darkly comedic, forensic journey into the romantic failures of our once happy couple.
Join us for their last hurrah in all its beautiful, awkward glory.

Nico Marica is a Romanian actress and multi-disciplinary performer.
She studied Acting at the National University of Theatrical Arts and Cinematography “I.L. Caragiale” in Bucharest.
She worked with well-known Romanian directors both in theatre and film.
In 2022 she had her London debut with the one-woman show “Me&Her” at Barons Court Theatre.
She finds the character of Daria challenging because of the emotional rollercoaster of a breakup, and when you add humor on top of that, things become even more complex. “It’s a journey we’ve all been through, in our own way, and that makes the play relatable yet particular”.
