Love In Idleness

22 January - 23 January
Love In Idleness

By Terence Rattigan

The year is 1944. The term 'teenager' is officially coined. 155,000 Allied troops are shipped to the beaches of Normandy in the D-Day landings.

After being evacuated to Canada in 1939, a now-17-year-old Michael returns home to London. Having grown strong socialist convictions during his time away, Michael is appalled to find that his mother is 'living in sin' with the wealthy, right-wing MP and minister for Tank Production, Sir John Fletcher. A battle of love and political rivalry ensues, while the Britain of old is left behind forever…

Rattigan's political comedy is explored through a post-modern lens, a punk soundtrack, and a sense of youthful revolution.
