A play by Abi Morgan

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. A truly moving tale guaranteed to pull on your heart strings.



"Abi Morgan's love story... is as tender as the bruised peaches that fall to the ground in the garden of the elderly couple's home" Lynn Gardner, Guardian

"A production that speaks to all generations...a piece of theatre that tickles us lightly, it wraps the story around us and cradles us gently...If Love Song has anything to teach a younger audience, it is to enjoy life to its fullest, to accept love when it happens, and to understand that relationships are about being in a constant flux, even if you’re nearing ‘the end’. Nothing is a given, and everything is to play for..." Jake Orr, A Younger Theatre.
