Love Love Love

Paines Plough: No 1 Tour, Producer Tara Wilkinson Director James Grieve Writer Mike Bartlett

Love, Love, Love takes on the baby boomer generation as it retires, and finds it full of trouble. Smoking, drinking, affectionate and paranoid, one couple’s forty-year journey from initial burst to full bloom.
Paines Plough and the Drum Theatre Plymouth present the world première of Olivier Award winner Mike Bartlett’s new play.

Kate's Profile >

A nuanced, witty script about payback for the baby boomers who merrily swung through the Sixties

Dominic Cavendish The Daily Telegraph

Three moments, one family and an almighty intergenerational conflict: this is the territory for Mike Bartlett's new play...deliciously rich in period detail.

Elizabeth Mahoney The Guardian

...this is an absorbing piece which does not lecture and does not always sit comfortably but nevertheless entertains.

Karen Bussell Whats on Stage

...a firework display of pain and mutual miscomprehension. Dazzling.

Clare Brennan The Observer

the sexy but square Henry played by the excellent Simon Darwen
