Ticketmaster Summer in Stages

Love Child

Running time: 1h 20min approx

Joel, a neurotic down-on-his-heels actor/playwright, is opening his new adaptation of an obscure Euripides comedy. Unknown to him, there's a big-time Hollywood casting director in the house, as well as his crazy mother (who's also his agent) and his crazy aunt (who's really his mother).

When one of the actors takes sleeping pills and passes out mid-performance and the leading lady quits, Joel's relatives leap over the footlights to rescue the show.

Three actors portray over 20 roles in the London stage debut of director Luke Pebody, following success with productions in New York, Edinburgh and Cambridge University.
