An Intervention looks at the tensions of a platonic friendship between a man and a woman.
Mike Barlett"s Love, Love, Love is set over five decades following a baby boomer couple from 19 to 62 through marriage, children and divorce. Ben Miles and Victoria Hamilton under James Grieve"s direction are charged with believably aging more than 40 years.
Mike Bartlett is writing exciting plays about families. His debut play My Child which opened at the Royal Court showed his talent for accurately observing the terrible language of family breakup. Now he follows it up with a tale about a girl and the clash of cultures in her heritage. It starts with the girl's story and ends with that of another girl from a different world. The whole is a political allegory.
