1967. Kenneth and Sandra meet and it’s a whole new world.

A fiery relationship is sparked in the haze of the 60s, and charred by today’s brutal realities.

From passion to paranoia Love Love Love takes on the baby boomer generation as it retires, and finds it full of trouble.

Mike Bartlett is one of Britain’s top young writers, his play Cock won him an Olivier Award and is soon to transfer to New York. He has also written both 13 and Earthquakes In London for the National Theatre.
