Love Song

by John Kolvenbach
Directed by Ben Prusiner
Designed by Edoardo Lelli
Wed 29 Apr – Sat 2 May

Beane is an eccentric introvert who falls in love with a burglar named Molly. His sister Joan’s relationship with her husband Harry is falling apart. All their lives are transformed by Beane’s new romance, but Molly’s true identity is a secret so shocking it cannot be ignored…

Love Song is an hysterically funny and wrenchingly honest look at love in all its forms.

This amateur production of “Love Song” is presented by special arrangement with Josef Weinberger Limited.

Tickets available from Wardrobe Theatre

A post show discussion, led by the director and designer, will take place following Thursday 30th April’s performance.
