“Infectious...one to watch,” (4* Litro Magazine).
A comedy about sex, disco and loneliness.
Love to Love to Love You, an absurdist, comedy of manners for generation Y, is a biting satire, which reimagines the patriarchal comedy La Ronde in a parallel, peach leather infused, contemporary world. Hedonism and money rule, disco (the ultimate soundtrack to any venal activity) is back and, crucially, women are the sexual predators and men their prey.The result is an acerbic exposé of sex and seduction. With a live disco cabaret, Love to Love to Love You, is a raucous and anarchic piece of theatre, challenging preconceptions about sex and gender in our society.
Set within 24 hours, six successive characters meet and attempt to seduce each other, in increasingly ridiculous, yet all too familiar, ways. We follow The Gigolo, The Blogger, The Personal Trainer, The History of Art Student, The Artist and The Teen, as they each try to use their sexuality to further their ambitions and dreams, whether to find their mother or pay back debt, each character is searching, in vain, for affirmation from a fractured, fast paced fickle world.
