Love is a leap of faith.
Lovesong intertwines the lives of a couple in their 20s with the same man and woman a lifetime later. Their past and present selves collide in this haunting and beautiful tale of togetherness.
Acclaimed writer Abi Morgan, whose film and television credits include Shame (Directed by Steve McQueen), The Hour and Sex Traffic, is reunited with award-winning company Frantic Assembly (Othello, Beautiful Burnout, Tiny Dynamite).
'It builds beautifully into a touching meditation on loss and separation through death. You may well not leave it dry-eyed.’ **** The Times
‘A heartfelt, beautifully crafted piece of theatre.’ ***** Yorkshire Post
'Lovesong is compelling, understated perfection.' The Stage
'Heart-stoppingly effective.' The Guardian
