A Dickensian Christmas (4).png
14th October - 23rd October 2020


By Moira Buffini

What is love?  Does human desire change through time?  Or are we all eternally searching for an impossible union somewhere between the physical and the emotional? Moira Buffini’s wryly satirical play charts a chaotic trail of seduction, transaction and romantic aspiration that takes place on a single spot of ground across 2000 years.

Pragmatic, intellectual, occasionally even brutal, these transient sexual encounters are ironically reflected in the fortunes of the spot on which they take place, as it evolves from Roman latrine to sacred Abbey and ultimately to the steel and concrete of commercial London.

Loveplay is a very funny, sometimes brutal, often moving and constantly entertaining look at love from a variety of perspectives. The terrific cast of four don’t miss a beat... Loveplay is simply superb.



Vanloo Reviews

The play is never less than entertaining and provocative. Elena Valentine, Georgia Nicholson, Dan Bottomley and Liam Jeavons all produce exceptional performances, a wonderful showreel of characterisations with depth and a glint in the eye.
