Bartlett's Love Set for Liverpool Playhouse, May
Directed by new Paines Plough co-artistic director James Grieve, the company featured Daniela Denby-Ashe (My Family), John Heffernan (After the Dance, The Habit of Art), Simon Darwen (Mad Forest), James Barrett (2nd May 1997) and Rosie Wyatt (Bunny).
Mike Bartlett’s play Cock won the Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in an Affiliate Theatre in 2010. His other credits include Artefacts, Not Talking and Earthquakes In London, which was co-produced with Headlong at the National Theatre last month.
Love, Love, Love “takes on the baby boomer generation as it retires, and finds it full of trouble. Smoking, drinking, ambitious and paranoid, one couple’s 40-year journey from initial burst to full bloom.”
It runs at the Liverpool Playhouse from 5 - 7 May.
