A romantic Greek comedy, Melody is heart-broken when she is invited to her ex-boyfriend’s wedding. Her eccentric mother forces Melody to attend confession. Will Melody find her happy ending with a Prince or God? A-bloody-men!

AUGUST 25th - 28th 

“Melody’s Men” is a heart-felt romantic Greek comedy. Unlucky in love, Melody (34) half Greek Cypriot, is a romantic writer from Frinton, Essex who lives with her Greek mother.

Melody is facing an existential crisis, she is losing her faith in everything; God, work and most of all love. After receiving a wedding invitation to her ex-boyfriend’s wedding and being stuck in a dead-end job, Melody’s faith is at an all-time low. She encounters a “questionable” fortune teller, who reveals that many men will enter her life. However, it is unclear if she’ll ever find “the one”. Melody’s over-religious mother is horrified to learn that Melody has sold her soul by visiting a fortune teller. Why pay a complete stranger to listen to you, when you can talk to God for free? And so, Melody finds herself forced to go to confession. We follow Melody on her journey through various confessional episodes where she questions her faith in God, love and life.

She lands a job at a London Literary Agency and moves in with her extended Greek family aka the Greek Mafia, in Walthamstow, East London. Melody is shortlisted for a play-writing competition that may give her the career break she longs for.

Each confession visit reveals a new stage of Melody’s life, whilst trying to juggle her love life and career and, finding the confidence to take a leap of faith.

“My life wasn’t meant to turn out this way. When I was a young, I was obsessed with Sex and the City. I wanted to be Carrie Bradshaw. I thought by the time I’m 35, even if I haven’t found my soul mate, hopefully my career will have taken off. I’ll be living in some kind of hipster apartment in London, draped in Armani clothes and having plenty of mind-blowing sex. Instead, I’m living with my mum, stuck in a dead-end job, wearing Primani and the only sex I seem to having lately is with myself and most of the time I can’t be arsed to that either. It just feels like an effort really.

Everyone I know, seems to have moved on with their lives, but I’m still in exactly the same place I was, when I was 15; living at home and drinking out of a very questionable fish-bowl from the same pub I used to sneak into as a teenager.”
