Mike Dorval’s



Mike Dorval’s hilariously interactive Trials of Love comes to Gloucester Stage for Valentine’s Night. Previously playing to sold out houses at the Charles Playhouse in Boston — the side-splitting cast will be laughing along with couples on this side of the bridge. This interactive problem-solving comedy show, hosted by Mike Dorval, the show’s creator, will run Valentine’s Night, Wednesday February 14th at 7:30pm at Gloucester Stage at 267 E Main St, Gloucester MA 01930. Doors at 6:30 p.m., show at 7:30 p.m.; reserved seating; tickets available online at gloucesterstage.com.

Trials of Love, crafted by Dorval renown standup comedian, brings everyday couples into the Love Judge’s (Dorval’s) ‘courtroom’ to have their relationship conflicts worked out through comedic insight and juried audience participation. The couple receives prizes and a lifetime courtroom pass — as well as having their relationship saved — and the partner who emerges victorious is awarded an official proclamation for their triumph. The Love Judge promises there isn’t a couples’ conundrum he can’t resolve — although he does footnote that “isn’t an actual promise.”

In addition to each night’s featured couple on trial, the Lightning Round of Love gives every member of the audience an opportunity to stump the Love Judge with their relationship dilemma, and the top problem of the night also wins a prize — in addition to their newfound flaw-free relationship!

Trials of Love is truly unique – each couple and audience brings fresh fodder for comedy. It’s the Valentine’s Date, Ladies’ Night, or Group Outing. Enjoy some of the fabulous restaurants on Cape Ann, and finish the night with laughter at Gloucester Stage Company!
