Love Song (Hands In The Air Productions)

By | Published on Tuesday 9 August 2011

‘Love Song’ as a title, along with its blurb about an amusing romance, made me cringe initially; I did not expect the play to be awe-inspiring or life-changing. And yet it turned out to be an utterly endearing performance, with a plot that runs much deeper than romance or comedy. My affections lay doggedly with protagonist Bean and his ability to execute the role of oddball-loner with subtlety and grace. The only downside, however, is that this play has a Universal rating despite a good portion of the discourse relating to sex and innuendo. If you are looking for a well-written play with masterful acting, and are open-minded about the minutiae of relationships, see ‘Love Song’.

C Soco, 3 – 20 Aug, 1.30 (2.30), £6.50 – £9.50, fpp277.
