Things we do for love

Visit Web Site Starts : 16 Apr 2014 - Ends : 26 Apr 2014

Bath and Bristol events : Things we do for loveIn South West London Barbara, elegant and glacial, lives on the middle floor of her converted house. Downstairs, lovelorn postman and part-time plumber Gilbert has created a shrine to his landlady. Upstairs, the empty flat is a perfect bolthole for Nikki (played by Natalie Imbruglia), Barbara's old school-friend, and her fiancé Hamish. Unfortunately Hamish is everything that Barbara despises and Hamish takes an instant dislike to Barbara - a hostility which hides deeper feelings.

In an intriguing set, which reveals a limited view of the rooms above and below Barbara’s flat, bedroom farce develops into something more complex as the two adversaries fall head over heels in lust…The UK’s greatest living playwright makes hilarity and artistry from the things we do for love.
