About the Show Less...

A romantic musical set in a retirement home to warm the cockles of any heart. Read More >

The team behind the smash hit Metamorphosis return with something very different – a heart-warming romantic musical set in an old people’s home. Love celebrates the passion of two elderly people who find love right at the end of their lives, and sing about it!

Neville is 80 and slowly wasting away in an unremarkable care home in a small English town. His life seems to be heading for a predictable end until Margaret is brought into the home by her son for a short stay. Margaret, 78 and terrified of what will happen to her, meets Neville over tea and singing, and their lives change forever. Then Neville suggests they escape for a night out on the town…

With tunes from modern pop songs, Love is a joyous and touching summer celebration of the timeless rejuvenating power of romantic passion.
