On the 21st of July , we had a theatre performance of Moira Buffini’s Loveplay which was running for 3 nights. The performance was at the Young Actors Theatre Islington. The actors and actresses were all ages between 18-24 years old and are part of our professional acting foundation course. This play was led by a professional production team. The performance had an excellent turn out on all 3 nights.
Moira Buffini’s Loveplay is play which is set around two thousand years ago which takes us through the roman temple to the medieval abbey, elegant town house and the Victorian studio and 1960’s squat and eventually becomes a modern dating agency. Loveplay takes place in an London location. The 31 characters in the play remind the audience that the search for love throughout history has been depressing and volatile.
Loveplay is an incisive, funny and sharply observed piece of theatre about changing social, economic and sexual moves.
