Love, Love, Love

Written by

Mike Bartlett

Produced by

Theatre Royal Plymouth & Paines Plough


1967. Kenneth and Sandra know the world is changing. And they want some of it.

Love, Love, Love takes on the baby boomer generation as it retires, and finds it full of trouble. Smoking, drinking, affectionate and paranoid, one couple’s forty-year journey from initial burst to full bloom. Paines Plough and the Theatre Royal Plymouth present the world première of Mike Bartlett’s new play, directed by Paines Plough’s co-Artistic Director James Grieve

Chekov in Hell 

Written by

Dan Rebellato

Produced by

Theatre Royal Plymouth


“I don’t know who he is but he’s old, he’s got to know stuff…he’s got to be like wise and stuff yeah?”

Anton Chekhov, masterful playwright and mirror to Russian society, awakening from one hundred years of sleep is thrust rudely into twenty first century Britain. Reality shows, fashionistas, Z-list celebrities, illegal immigrants, chuggers and wags. Pole dancing,
YouTube, Twitter and Metrosexuals. Chekhov in Hell takes you on a whirlwind tour of modern day Britain.

"Simon Stokes’ excellent production keeps the whole thing bubbling along, and if the show never quite finds an emotionally satisfying balance between the farcical and the heartfelt, it’s a neat 90 minutes performed with real skill and flair by a superb cast"
