Third Angel makes its first visit to Southwark Playhouse with a show about love. Not romantic, thrill of passion love, or unconditional, unquestioned love. Everyday, what shall we have for dinner, will you be in later, expecting to go on living together - well what else would we do? - love.
The show opens with a bare stage and a couple whose history is unknown to us. Slowly the performers build the set and the audience build a picture of their lives.
Tom and Beth are the generic thirty-something couple of our time: two people who have been gradually talking less and slowly wanting more. They've been building a life together for the past seven years, buying lots of stuff, sharing friends and acquiring memories. They haven't really had time to wonder if this is what they wanted. They just get on with things. Questions asked, answers not listened to.
The cast is Chris Thorpe and Lucy Ellinson.
