Ashley is a lonely woman with a mountain of trash and a nosy neighbor. When she is finally forced to face her hoarding problem, Ashley finds unexpected love… but deeper issues bubble to the surface, and her mess spreads farther than anyone can handle. A very dark comedy about love, garbage, and kidnapping the guy next door.

Running Time: Dirty Filthy Love Story runs approximately 70 minutes with no intermission.


...they deliver what is frankly one of the most impressive scene changes I’ve ever witnessed in a theater space of any magnitude.

[read the entire review here]

Under the light-hearted guidance of director Elina de Santos, the able cast achieves a lunatic buoyancy that sends the play soaring… As for Mersola’s delightfully trashy play, it gets more outrageous with every scene -- and that’s a very good thing indeed.

- LA Times       

Brilliant fusion of light slapstick, dark humor, and crime thriller… De Santos offers her audience a refreshing take on physical comedy through broadly satiating direction.
