“There’s still so much I have to say. Maggie –”
A love affair told over many years. As Maggie and Billy prepare for a critical week together, their former selves re-emerge.
From youthful exuberance to the complexities and loyalties of age, we follow Margaret and William throughout the years as they move towards a shared future and, ultimately, the solitude that follows.
Lovesong offers a haunting and fragile story about love, memory and growing older. Written by multi-award-winning playwright Abi Morgan (Splendour), this delicate, poetic and moving production will feature an original live cello score.
