As part of her post-show Q&A series, Mates co-founder Terri Paddock will talk to the director and cast of the long-awaited UK premiere of Broadway comedy LUV on Thursday 15 December 2016. Got any questions? Book tickets to join her via the links below.

I had such fun chairing the post-show Q&A for Buckland Theatre’s revival of Neil LaBute’s Some Girl(s) earlier this year at the Park Theatre (follow links for photos from that event). So I’m delighted to be asked back to quiz artistic director Gary Condes and his new company – Charles Dorfman, Nick Marber and Elsie Bennett – back at the Park for the UK premiere of LUV…

LUV is a 1960s riotous celebration of the absurd lengths we go to when struck down with the terrible affliction known as ‘love’. After reuniting one fateful night, old school pals Milt and Harry uncover each other’s miserable life stories before hatching a plan to find their happily-ever-afters.

Come and indulge in this delightful comedy this Christmas, with its laugh out loud dialogue, physical comedy, and its infectious energy.

Written by Murray Schisgal, best known for writing the screenplay for Tootsie, LUV first premiered on Broadway in 1964 directed by Mike Nichols, where it won a number of Tony awards and nominations, among them Best Play and Best Author of a Play.

“A delicious spoof on a multitude of matters” – New York Times

“A wildly funny… drama which makes high comedy of the nagging indignities which flesh is heir to.” NY World – Telegram & Sun

“Love is a giving and taking, an interchange of emotions, a gradual development based on physical attraction, complementary careers and simple social similarities…. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!” – LUV by Murray Schisgal

For the LUV post-show Q&A after the evening performance on Thursday 15 December 2016, Terri will be joined by director Gary Condes and members of the cast.
