by Moira Buffini

Directed by David Lomas

Performances: Wed 16th – Sat 19th February 2005, Prompt Corner


Moira Buffini's "Loveplay" follows a tangled trail of seductions, transactions and encounters that take place in the same location in London from 79 AD to the present day. It is a funny but often desolate and unpredictable search for love across two millennia. The tone is mostly sharp, sassy and very entertaining, but there is also an undertow of darkness and sadness. Ten scenes in ten different historical eras depict couplings of many sorts - romantic and commercial, willing and forced, hetero- and gay, achieved and frustrated. Upon our tiny stage in Prompt Corner we will travel from Roman Britain to a Medieval convent, from scientific investigations of the C18th to a hilarious exploration of free love in the 1960's, from over-earnest attempts of the Renaissance to idealise love to the wild notions of the Romantic era.
