Genre: Comedy
Sub-genre: sketch show, satire

Dates is an original sketch comedy satirising the trials and tribulations of modern dating. In an era of social media, dating apps, casual sex and third wave feminism, traditional dating practices must be negotiated amidst the changing tide. A practice that once referred to a chaperone accompanying two courting lovebirds on a country frolic now describes a hook-up in an ASDA carpark. Ambiguity over the acceptability of your dowry to potential suitors has been replaced by ambiguity over an aubergine emoji. What is the result of these changing social norms, gender roles and dating practices? Comedic potential.
