Overview

Love, Love, Love takes on the baby boomer generation as they retire and find their world full of trouble. It follows one couple's forty year journey from initial burst of romance to full bloom of love and through stages of smoking, drinking, affection and paranoia. The play follows their idealistic teenage years in the 1960s to their marriage and family and ultimate divorce, which dissolves their marriage but leaves them free from acrimony. Their children, however, bitterly rail against their parents' irresponsibility and their relaxed, laissez-faire attitude.

This play by Olivier award-winning writer Mike Bartlett questions whether the baby boomer generation is to blame for the debt-ridden and adrift generation of their children, now adults but far from stable and settled.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Terrific dialogue and acute observations as it takes its protagonists from falling in love in 1967 to suburban squabbles in 1990 to retirement in 2011."—The Times (of  London)
 

"Bartlett does the clash of generational world views with a devastating precision."—The Guardian
 

"Bartlett doesn't just have an acute ear for the way things were, but how youth then hoped things might be, and the scene is rich with a sense of newly discovered female emancipation and budding mischief."—Daily Telegraph
 

"An old-fashioned, three-act, two-interval drama but there is nothing stuffy about this acid-sharp story of a couple who wanted to change the world but cannot change themselves."—The Observer
 

"Enormously accomplished playwright, Mike Bartlett, loves experimenting with form."—Sunday Daily Mail
