LOVE

 

“Gentle, often funny, but ultimately devastating. Above all, and most movingly, it is a piece about love at its hardest.”
The Financial Times (UK) ★★★★★

“Gripping, amusing, uncomfortable, desperately moving”
The Times (UK) ★★★★★

Having dazzled UK audiences at the National Theatre and garnered widespread acclaim around the world, this engaging new play makes its North American premiere and marks the New York debut of writer and director Alexander Zeldin. This powerful piece of drama—written after a years-long process of community collaboration and immersion, personal interviews, and first-hand accounts—draws attention to the cracks in the welfare system when several families are brought together in a shelter in the lead up to Christmas. The audience is invited to step inside their reality and bear witness to some of the touching, humorous, and profoundly human instances of their combined existence.

Played with the house lights up and audience members seated amongst the company, the heart-breaking production reveals the cast seeming to live rather than act. The result is an engrossing and intimate story for our times that shows rather than tells and is born out of the daily rituals of survival, highlighting the link between homelessness, mental health, and austerity politics, but also the yearning for, and power of, love.
