The National Theatre and Birmingham Repertory Theatre’s co-production of Alexander Zeldin’s deeply affecting play LOVE was first seen at the end of 2016 and then subsequently toured in late 2018. It was then made into an on-location film for the BBC. That film is now available on the BBCiPlayer as part of their Culture in Quarantine programme.
In the run up to Christmas, three families are placed into cramped temporary accommodation. A middle-aged man and his elderly mum, a young family with a baby on the way, a newly arrived woman from Sudan. Strangers. Forced together. No space is personal.
In this work, written and directed by Alexander Zeldin, the audience are invited to bear witness to an intimate story of family love for our times.
Alexander Zeldin’s previous work includes the critically acclaimed, ‘raw’ (Financial Times) and ‘unforgettable’ (The Times) BEYOND CARING.
LOVE continues his unique approach to theatre, examining people- and the systems that try to support them – in crisis.
LOVE’s duration is one hour.
