Richard Marsh and Katie Bonna's Fringe First-winning play is to make its West End debut.

Dirty Great Love Story will open at the Arts Theatre in January 2017 and run until March.

The piece, which ran originally at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2012, is about two hopeful, hapless romantics who accidentally get together in a moment of drunkenness.

The show combines poetry, drama, rhythm and rhyme in the exploration of modern romance.

Bonna and Marsh said: "We're overjoyed that Dirty Great Love Story will be swaggering and spewing, loving and losing its way back to the stage. It's going to be a huge treat to see two other actors playing out our excruciating embarrassments, boozy triumphs and awkward romantic disasters."

Marsh's one-man play Skittles was commissioned for Radio 4 and his sitcom Richard Marsh: Cardboard Heart starred Russell Tovey, Jemima Rooper and Phil Daniels.

Bonna was nominated for a best actress award by the Stage and is currently developing a new TV series. Her recent show All the Things I've Lied About ran at this year's Edinburgh Fringe at Summerhall.
