Love will be played out across the ages with the tender story-telling of Lovesong at the Talisman Theatre.

The Kenilworth theatre will explore the optimism of youth alongside wisdom of experience in the tender love story.

Playing from Monday until Saturday (October 18), Lovesong intertwines a couple in their 20s with the same man and woman a lifetime later.

Their past and present selves collide in this haunting and beautiful tale of togetherness which explores the leap of faith that is love.

Written by Abi Morgan, whose screenplays include The Iron Lady and Birdsong, this is a play that promises the humour and the warm empathy that only the intimacy of a stage can arouse.

Director Sarah Campbell was delighted at being able to bring the play to the Talisman with a cast including Ann Richards, John Dawson Alice Scott and Joshua Pink.

The theatre’s John Francis said: “Anyone who enjoyed our sell-out productions of Black Coffee and The Addams Family could well be tempted to experience this beautifully written piece within our intimate auditorium.”

The action takes place on a Richard Poynter set, held together by backstage crew Gill Bowser, Mike Santos and Roz Grant. Lighting and Sound are by Steve Roberts and Dik Thacker.

Shows start at 7.30pm, tickets from £7 via 856548.
