AN UNAPOLOGETIC, PASSIONATE AND SEARING EXPLORATION OF LOVE
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.
Annie and Tanya make a pact; their love will protect them from an unloving world and it will endure. Even the dreadful and charming Lorenzo will not threaten it. Only doubt in each other’s love can put a wedge between them.
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. It contains the hallmarks Cornelius is revered for – her astounding lyricism, unsentimental characters, and a world that is unceremoniously real.
Darlinghurst Theatre Company is proud to be producing the Sydney main-stage premiere of Love.
