Love

Date: 30 Oct 2018

Tanya, Annie and Lorenzo desperately seek love in a loveless world.

Shackled by grinding poverty and substance abuse they’re difficult to like, let alone love.

They’ve been abused. They’re abusive. But it is love in all its distorted and mutated forms that holds them together.

Patricia Cornelius is one of Australia’s most awarded and innovative playwrights. In 2004 Love won the Wal Cherry Award for Play of the Year and in 2006 an Awgie Award for Stage.

Love is one of Cornelius’ earlier plays. It’s uncompromising and raw and features all the hallmarks Cornelius is revered for: her astounding lyricism, unsentimental characters, and a world that is unceremoniously real.

Rachel Chant directs this new production featuring Rose Riley, Anna Samson and Hoa Xuande.
