Set in modern-day New York City, with a nod toward Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice and the exploration of what attracts people to one another, this hilarious musical is the story of a young, uptight greeting card writer whose life is changed when he meets a flighty photographer. Along with their friends and siblings, they learn to love each other not in spite of their faults, but because of them.

I Love You Because takes its inspiration from American situation comedies such as Friends and How I Met Your Mother and integrates it with modern musical theatre. The wonderful thing about this 6-hander, is that it still has the one-liners, eccentric characters, and domestic quirkiness of a TV comedy but with songs - great songs.

Not suitable for those aged under 15 (contains infrequent strong language).
