Well known as Dobby in Peep Show, Isy plays all the characters in this romantic tale dripping with hopes, heartbreak and emoticons. We follow our two protagonists Pearl and Dave as they live out their dreams in the flighty grotto of cyber-space. Set to music, the show is interspersed with vignettes from Isy’s own love life as she mirrors her two subjects in her quest for ‘The One’.
Isy’s musical comedy has been compared to Victoria Wood and John Hegley but she very much carves her own furrow of funny, leftfield, sometimes haunting and moving songs. Her aim to be sometimes naturalistic, sometimes fantastical – as she weaves together stand up, music and characters.
Isy Suttie's Pearl & Dave is at the Lowry on 27 May.
