The Love Stories Show
Mark Rutterford

If you think The Love Stories Show might be a sit-back and listen kind of affair… think again. Mark Rutterford describes it as ‘a two-hander with the audience’ – an interactive story-telling show that promises you will:
· Fall in love and feel crushed by the loss of it
· Play in The World Cup of Love Songs
· Laugh out loud, whilst eating Love Hearts given to you by an alien
· Decide on the ending of a story, and
· Share your shiniest and silliest romantic moments

Each show is unique and highlights are published on so you can read about audience stories of first kisses at Stonehenge, a first-date that broke their back, sex ‘where I knocked myself out’, and a proposal where everything went wrong. Audiences have crowned Marvin Gaye, Roberta Flack, Coldplay and Elbow as World Cup Winners and made some terrible choices for a first-date story before Lizzo saved the day.

Mark says, ‘it’s a whirlwind romance of stories and laughs about love - for romantics and cynics alike.’ The 4-star review from its Bath Fringe debut in 2023 said "Mark has beguiled me into leaving my cynic at the door".
