Comedy actor Matt Panesh explains why Love Hurts, Actually

Comedy actor Matt Panesh comes to The Met with Love Hurts, Actually, his unofficial sequel to the hit film Love Actually, on Thursday 22 May at 8pm.


What would really happen if the Prime Minister told America the ‘special relationship’ was over and then got caught warming up to the maid? In this wickedly funny one-man show Matt Panesh takes on the characters of Emma Thompson, Alan Rickman, Hugh Grant, Martine McCutcheon and Liam Neeson as the group sit down to Christmas dinner following the events of the film Love Actually.


The original romantic comedy roles are somehow transmogrified into Downton Abbey characters where tensions hit pressure cooker level as the house guests gather.” – The Stage


Matt Panesh writes, produces and performs drama, comedy and poetry. Critically acclaimed on its debut in Edinburgh, and directed by Andy McQuade (Fringe Report, Best Director 2012) Love Hurts, Actually is a fast paced comedy which scores underlying political points on class in the UK.


Love Hurts, Actually is suitable for ages 16+ and tickets are £10 or £8 for concessions. For more information or to book phone 0161 761 2216 or go online at www.themet.biz
