Are baby boomers to blame for the fact that their children's generation is debt-ridden and adrift? Love, Love, Love takes on the baby boomer generation as it retires, and finds it full of trouble.

It's 1967. Kenneth and Sandra know the world is changing and they want some of it. Smoking, drinking, affectionate and paranoid, they journey forty years from initial burst to full bloom.

Their children, on the other hand, bitterly rail against their parents' irresponsibility and their relaxed, laissez-faire attitude.

Love, Love, Love was first staged by Paines Plough in 2010.

This Methuen Drama edition features an introduction by James Grieve, who directed the play's first production.
