Post Show Q&A Thu 14 & 21 Oct
Here's a selction of feedback from our ANLO members:
"Love, Love, Love is a must see play! One of the best I've ever seen. The actors were so clever acting three eras in one play. The sets and the costumes were great and I'd totally recommend going to see it. I will be seeing it again I enjoyed it so much. Thank you ANLO for the free ticket! Definitely one to remember!”
“I went to see Love, Love, Love last night and it was the best thing I have ever seen in the theatre!... and that is saying something! The acting was incredible, even when there was a slight hitch with the staging. The storyline drew you in so much that I felt emotionally exhausted when it finished! It gives you so much to think about and is extremely cleverly done with three acts each in a different era; 60s, 90s and modern day. I recommend that anyone over 14 beg, borrow or steal a ticket now (although actually you don't need to - just get one of the many free ANLO tickets available - or even £5 ones on Fridays!).”
“I loved it and am going to see it again in the last week as I thought it was so good! It completely changes your perspective of life and is really quite amazing! Get your ticket now!”
“I saw it last night too and it was really good. I really enjoyed it and would definitely recommend it!”
“I saw it last night, so impressed! I spent a while trying not to cry since I was in public!”

The play Love Love Love is a dynamic story of lust, blame, smoking, drinking, drugs, aggression and passion.
We are first introduced to a carefree university student named Kenneth. A charming yet slightly pathetic character, Kenneth is a long way from the personality of his older working class, traditionally old fashioned brother Henry the chauvinist. As the story begins, we learn that the serious natured character is clearly past his limitations as to how much he can cope with Kenneth's antics. This is when we are introduced to his new love interest in the form of a very petite, straight talking, provocatively fun loving young lady named Sandra. Now, being a student in the 60's, surely she doesn't see anything interesting in Henry the old fashioned party extinguisher?
When she is introduced to Kenneth by his brother, there is an instant spark as the political nonsense spouting duo's gazes meet.
Later on in the passing years, we are updated with knowledge as to how to fiery young lady and Kenneth wandered along their entwining pathways. To begin the next part of the play, we are introduced to the older version of Kenneth and Sandra and their ever loving children. The booze soaked, chain smoking older Sandra reveals that she has no intention of changing her ways as she encourages her children to drink, smoke and swear in her presence.
Eruptions of blazing frenzies ultimately lead to married couple admitting to adultery and the story then ventures to see their young daughter attempt to commit suicide. As the lights go down on this chapter of the family's life, we are left with a haunting image of a schoolboy sitting in his living room whilst smoking a cigarette and drinking to the sound of his parents trying to save his rebelliously unstable sister. But who is to blame?
