Roundabout Theatre Company Presents
As Part of the 50th Anniversary Season
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE
A Play by Mike Bartlett
Directed by Tony Award Winner Michael Mayer Off-Broadway
Roundabout welcomes Mike Bartlett following the critically acclaimed and celebrated Broadway debut of his play King Charles III. Tony Award winning stage, film and opera director Michael Mayer returns to Roundabout to direct his sixth production.
It’s the late 1960s in a north London flat, and Henry is excitedly anticipating the arrival of his date, Sandra. The night changes course when Sandra and Henry’s brother Kenneth quickly realize how much they have in common—their love of Rock and Roll and their love of marijuana, for starters. A fiery relationship is sparked in the haze of the 60s, and charred by today’s brutal realities. Fast forward twenty-three years, and the economy and politics of an ever-changing world are wearing on the marriage of this baby boomer couple. Can they remain faithful to each other while trying to provide a loving and supportive home for their children—children who are growing up in a time when the next generation is not always provided for? Spanning more than four decades, this dark comedy is the story of what happens when the free-loving teens of the 60s face the harsh realities of today’s world. From passion to paranoia, Love, Love, Love takes on the baby boomer generation as it retires, and finds it full of trouble.
