‘Once, the water in my glass tasted like rotten pipes and base metals. Now it’s see-through joy.’

Beane is an eccentric introvert who falls in love with a burglar named Molly. His sister Joan’s relationship with her husband Harry is falling apart. All their lives are transformed by Beane’s new romance, but Molly’s true identity is a secret so shocking it cannot be ignored…

‘Love Song’ is a hysterically funny and wrenchingly honest look at love in all its forms, from new passions to rekindled marriages to family ties. How can you survive a love that has made you feel so alive?

The Directors’ Cuts season is a programme of contemporary theatre presented by the four graduating directors from Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and featuring work by acting, design and production students. Now in its fourteenth year and at The Wardrobe Theatre for the fourth time, the Directors’ Cuts season is firmly established in the Bristol theatre calendar. It has a reputation for showcasing fresh, vibrant and cutting edge theatre work by some of the finest emerging talent in UK theatre. Diverse and highly charged, this is a season of provocative plays which all have an important relevance in today’s society.

“Contemporary drama with extraordinary insightfulness, vivacity and theatrical prowess.”
