“That is the story of our beginning. 
And this is the story of… the end”

All relationships have their ups and downs; the optimism of youth becomes the wisdom of experience. Lovesong intertwines a couple in their twenties with the same man and woman a lifetime later. Their past and present selves collide in this haunting and beautiful tale of togetherness.

Acclaimed writer Abi Morgan, whose film and television credits include The Hour, Sex Traffic and the forthcoming Iron Lady (starring Meryl Streep), joins forces with the highly adventurous and dynamic Frantic Assembly.

Starring Sherman Cymru Patron, Siân Phillips.

Developed in association with the RSC Studio. Supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
