Hayley needs to find a boyfriend quick! She only has seconds to decide before it's too late. However, this is not real life, it's more important than that, this is a game - with strict rules. Find A Partner! is a play that takes us on a journey through the closing rounds of a gameshow about coupledom. Meet the contestants, revere them, live through them, reject them. A show, played by a few watched by many, but everyone's involved. Who's in, who's out, who likes who, who's with who, who gets a say and who gets to choose? Everything's at stake, because, well, EVERYTHING IS AT STAKE. That's life, everybody wants a partner, don't they? No partner?... impossible to imagine... isn't it? Impossible to live like that. Isn't it?
