Experience all the exhilaration and excitement of new love as Mimi goes on a blind date with a different man every night—plucked right out of the audience! Straight from sold-out runs in New York, London’s West End, and Toronto, this fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants fusion of clown, improv, theatre and social experiment is sure to make you fall in love with Mimi and celebrate her audience-member-turned-Romantic-Hero!

Creator Rebecca Northan says, "Blind Date is not a show about dating. That's just the packaging.” Hear more in this interview. Tess Degenstein, who’ll play the role of Mimi in the Surrey performances, adds, “It's just about, 'How do people connect?' Spontaneous Theatre company has such a big belief—and we've seen it over and over and over— that everyone has a beautiful story to tell, and everyone is lovable." In this interview, Tess describes how she creates a safe space and still leaves room for spontaneity. Have a look at the show’s ongoing dating diary on Facebook.
