7-9 Dec. The English Theatre of Rome presents Loveplay by Moira Buffini, directed by Douglas Dean.
Described as a “serio-comic look at two thousand years of human folly in 90 minutes” the play is a search through time and history, and challenges the whys and ways we aspire to love.
The ten scenes that make up the play take place in one London location: over the centuries it moves from Roman temple to mediaeval abbey, elegant town house, Victorian studio and 1960s squat, eventually becoming a modern dating agency. Loveplay expresses a uniquely philosophical view about the need and desire humans have for carnal and spiritual love.
The constant factor is the quest, often doomed, for love and sex.
In English. Not suitable for under 12s.
On 7 Dec (20.00), 8 and 9 Dec (17.00 and 20.00).
