How Love Is Spelt
A fresh, funny and playful tale of growing up and finding yourself in the city.
New city, new people, new life - Peta is moving on. Rejecting the comfort and security of Liverpool, she's up for excitement and adventure in London. But going solo isn't quite so simple, especially when there's a constant reminder of the life you're trying to escape. With each new encounter Peta flirts with what might have been... but can you ever really run away from yourself?
Chloë Moss's play How Love Is Spelt was first staged at the Bush Theatre, London, in 2004.
'The finest and most assured writing to be found outside the National Theatre this year... a moving and mature study of love, loneliness and the need to define one's identity... One of the year's undoubted highlights'Evening Standard
'A remarkably assured new talent. I can't remember a play in recent years that so adroitly captured the difficulty of being young and alone in the capital or did so with such refreshing humour...There's nothing loud or brash about this drama of youthful disillusion, but it's well worth shouting about'Daily Telegraph
