HEARTBREAK FOR DUMMIES
”Heartbreaks turns the human being into corny, oversentimental and pathetic little assholes.”
We all know it, we all hate, and we are all going to go through it once again. With a mix of performance and lecture, Partner in crime is presenting a serious heartbreak comedy, which will guide you through your heartache. ‘Cause you can die from heartbreaks, can’t you? Heartbreak for Dummies is a collage of all the big and small things we experience during the stages of a break-up. Four performers go through their experiences while telling their embarrassing stories and expertise. Who are we really when we are suffering from heartbreak, and will we ever get through it alive?

"...has pleasantly identified the folly that strikes us all, when we have heartache."
"...we smile big several times and recognize the many situations. It is definitely a great show to watch, if you are sitting and dealing with a small or large heartbreak. Go go go."

"Big is good, but small is sometimes even better, when it comes to telling 'thump in the stomach stories' about human beings and their struggles with being a human. Theatre Partner in Crime made sure that I got a thump in my stomach twice this past year. First time with the revival of Heartbreak for Dummies."
"Top of the list is Heartbreak for Dummies. Theatre Partner in Crime is a newly minted theatre-group that comes directly from sold-out shows and great reviews at Bådteatret last month. A group already looking like seasoned theatre professionals, this is a definite 'Don't Miss'."
