Getting dumped is like a mountain, full of setbacks and revenge cock…wait, what?   

GETTING OVER EVEREST is a comedic look at the peril of being dumped at the most wonderful time of the year… CHRISTMAS! Written and performed by Natasha Santos (Sh**faced Shakespeare, Leicester Square Theatre.  Marlborough Road, Hen & Chickens Theatre) and directed by Katherine Timms (The Plough, The Jack Wills Young Brit Awards).

Defined by her relationship status, Libby knows little else. When Rob Everest unexpectedly decides to cut ties 2 weeks before Christmas, she spirals into an unannounced depression as she tries to find her feet and festive spirit outside of a 10 year relationship. With the support of her friend Steph and the man from the bar, outspoken and explicit Libby attempts to find out who she is and what life has to offer.

A unique female led production combining monologue storytelling, ensemble, character comedy and the ultimate breakup playlist.
