Be My Bloody Valentine

It’s Valentine’s Day and at the headquarters of Friendship Assistance In London, Grace and Nigel are preparing for a night spent helping those in need of a friend. As the evening unfolds, the desperate and deranged that make up F.A.I.L.'s staff and clientele vie for each other's affections, culminating in the most romantic gesture of all: Murder.

Be My Bloody Valentine this February with Allez Hop! Theatre. A brand new black comedy with a body count only one shy of Al Capone’s St Valentine’s Day Massacre. Be My Bloody Valentine is the first show from Allez Hop! Theatre, a new international theatre company based in London.
