FRIDAY NIGHT LOVE POEM
A PLAY BY NATALIA KNOWLTON
From our obsession with early 00’s virginal pop stars, to mid 00’s dreamy emo boys, to baring it all on social media today…
Friday Night Love Poem is a funny, cringey and heartfelt throwback to the female teenage experience, from the early 00's to today. Three coming-of-age stories, one epic play about the journey to embracing female pleasure.
NEWS: Act I (Kate's story) of Friday Night Love Poem has recently been published by Lazy Bee Script as a one-act play. Buy a copy of A Straight Play here.
