‘That is the story of our beginning. And this is the story of…the end’
Lovesong intertwines a couple in their 20s with the same man and woman a lifetime later. Their past and present selves collide in this haunting and beautiful tale of togetherness. All relationships have their ups and downs; the optimism of youth becomes the wisdom of experience. Love is a leap of faith.
Acclaimed writer Abi Morgan, whose film and television credits include the forthcoming Iron Lady (starring Meryl Streep), The Hour and Sex Traffic, is reunited with award-winning company Frantic Assembly (Beautiful Burnout, Stockholm) with whom she worked on the acclaimed and beguiling Tiny Dynamite.
