Part comedy show and part performance, the critically acclaimed and utterly charming Love Song Dedications (without Richard Mercer) will show at Riverside Theatres on Tuesday 20th and Wednesday 21st July.

In 2013, after 17 years of being on air, late night radio legend, Richard Mercer, aired his final Love Song Dedication. Now, two brave friends attempt to fill the void that ‘The Love God’ left behind.

Join Bonnie and Tom on their quest to find the perfect love song. After listening to literally thousands of dedications this hilarious duo are neck deep in the challenge. They seriously need your help. It’s going to take all night! Actually, only about 70 minutes. You’ll laugh, you might cry. And your heart will soar (secretly) at all those half-forgotten songs you’re ashamed to know the lyrics to.

Love Song Dedications (without Richard Mercer) will take you on a joyous ride through contemporary politics, philosophy and wicked dance moves, one pop song at a time. In a world of post-truths, pandemics, ironic memes and anti-social media, this highly intelligent and warm-hearted show is the ultimate therapeutic experience. Irony will be truly dead, and only one question will hang in the air: “What is love? (…Baby don’t hurt me, don’t hurt me, no more…)”.

Love Song Dedications (without Richard Mercer) is produced by Green Room Association Award nominee Ten Tonne Sparrow with co-creators and stars Tom Hogan (internationally toured The Kalevala (According to Scott Sandwich)) and Bonnie Leigh-Dodds (Arts Centre Melbourne’s Small and Loud).
