Not For You Meg Gillan & Lauren Sagnella

About This Show

Not for You follows two girls in their mid-twenties, Gwen, a realist bed hopper, and Elle, a love lost dreamer, as they get ready for a wedding. The girls contemplate their personal love lives as they slip into reveries sharing stories of fuckboys, lovers, and boyfriends past. Each story leads up to the “not for you” moment – a realization that this person is not right for them. The play moves through past and present time using elements of music, film, and playful choreography.
