LOVE

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ “Gripping, amusing, uncomfortable, desperately moving” The Times

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. They are strangers to each other, forced to live together in the sterile premises of a public institution. The comfort is minimal and no space is personal. Nagging worries about the future make any form of mutual support all the more difficult.

Focusing on the fate of the most vulnerable people of society, Zeldin’s realistic theatre is both gentle and uncompromising. LOVE invites the audience to bear witness of their precarious conditions and continuous struggles, but also of the need and power of love in our times.
