A spellbinding new telling of a passionate and legendary love story.

When Abelard begins a wild affair with his brilliant student Heloise, his enemies find the perfect pretext to destroy him. Abelard is already on thin ice with the church over his contentious views and when Heloise bears his child out of wedlock, their affair becomes the scandal of the age…

Howard Brenton's play Eternal Love was first performed under the title In Extremis at Shakespeare’s Globe, London, in August 2006.
