WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
When Abelard begins a wild affair with his brilliant student Heloise, his enemies find the perfect pretext to destroy him. Abelard is already on thin ice with the church over his contentious views and when Heloise bears his child out of wedlock, their affair becomes the scandal of the age... With its dynamic, contemporary language, stunning costumes and terrific live music, Eternal Love makes history burst into life in an energetic, visceral and above all highly entertaining style. Previously titled 'In Extremis' and following a triumphant season at Shakespeare's Globe, audiences outside of London now get the chance to revel in this funny, passionate and legendary love story.
