Disillusioned by dating mishaps, she is convinced that the only way

for her to get close to Sebastian is to approach him online.

The Looking screen is a one-woman operetta about a girl's pursuit for true love on the internet composed and written by Anne Chmelewsky. Conceived in 2011 with mezzo-soprano Clare Presland in mind for the solo role, the show has been performed extensively across the UK as part of festivals and also for corporate events (Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2012, BBC worldwide Media centre, Kings Place and Bush Theatre). The show has also been featured on BBC radio Scotland and BBC radio London. The show was performed in conjunction with English Speaking Theatre in the Hague in October-November 2014.
