Lucie World Premiere Opens Tomorrow at BushDate: 26 May 1998
It's 1992, Labour leader Neil Kinnock's on the telly, and all things seem possible for Ros now that Jim's back on the scene. Her wayward best mate Shelley, however, ricochets through life from man to man, fuelled by recreational drugs and the expectation of her inheritance. By the time Blair's in power, Shelley has met Mick, procreated, parted and precipitated a disaster that entangles them all.
Love You, Too looks at the pre-occupations of the 30-something generation: love, jobs, football and the way the sexes feed off each other to survive.
Lucie's Hard Feelings and Progress premiered at the Bush in 1983 and 1984. His other work includes Fashion (RSC and Tricycle), Grace and Gaucho (Hampstead) and The Shallow End (Royal Court).
The well-heeled cast includes Reece Dinsdale, Susannah Doyle, Miranda Foster and Sam Graham. Dinsdale's stage work includes Racing Demon at the RNT; Doyle was on the West End last year in Hurlyburly at the Queen's; Foster's extensive RNT work includes King Lear, Anthony and Cleopatra and Pravda; and Graham's recent theatre credits include As You Like It (Cheek by Jowl) and Shining Souls (Old Vic).
Love You, Too runs to 27 June 1998. Tickets cost £10.
