Past and present entwine in Lovesong

Leamington Editorial 28th Jun, 2024   0

THE STORY of a marriage is told in Lovesong at Leamington’s Loft Theatre.

As Maggie and Billy face taking the biggest leap of all, their home becomes filled with the vibrant memories of their younger selves, newly emigrated and just starting out in married life.

Past and present entwine in the Abi Morgan-penned play, as the older and younger versions of the same couple share the stage, weaving a tale of togetherness, which is both joyful and heartbreaking.

Director Craig Shelton said: “Our production aims to capture the essence of this intricate narrative through a fusion of powerful performances, evocative choreography, and immersive staging. The actors have delved deeply into their characters, embodying both the vigour of youth and the wisdom of age with a sensitivity that is integral to the script’s rich emotional landscape.”

Lovesong runs from July 10 to 20.
