Love, Love, Love

By Mike Bartlett

Paperback £10.99

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.

Mike Bartlett's play Love, Love, Love was first staged by Paines Plough and Drum Theatre Plymouth in a touring production in 2010. It was revived in a new production by the Royal Court Theatre and Paines Plough in 2012.

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

Love, Love, Love is also available in the volume Mike Bartlett Plays: Two.
