Reviews

"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.
