National Theatre & Birmingham Repertory Theatre

Three families are brought together, placed in temporary accommodation in the run up to Christmas. Amongst them a middle-aged man and his elderly mother, relocated from their previous housing and a young couple preparing to welcome a new child into their family. The bonds of love that keep people together are put to the sternest test in this modern tale of hope, family and courage.


Love, National Theatre (Dorfman), London — ‘Devastating’

Here is a Christmas show for our times...gentle, often funny, but ultimately devastating. Above all, and most movingly, it is a piece about love at its hardest.

Theatre, Love at the Dorfman, SE1

Gripping, amusing, uncomfortable, desperately moving. Zeldin shows us friction…but also kindness and dignity and lots of love without turning sugary

Love, National Theatre, review: 'a severe reminder of how hard Christmas can be'

It is clear that there is no easy escape for the characters in Love, and no easy answers for anyone who dares to see this quietly provocative, necessary play.
