Live Theatre's production of Three Acts of Love by three female playwrights, Vici Wreford-Sinnott, Laura Lindow and Naomi Obeng, will star North East-born actor Imogen Stubbs.
The play features three stories which each explore what love means in the world today, from a closing social club to Internet fandom via an animated lecture by a heart-broken heart surgeon.
Stubbs said, “I am thrilled to be back again performing in Three Acts of Love at Live Theatre. The theatre is celebrating—and this is an astonishing feat—50 years of championing and nurturing new writing. This is so rare that it makes Live Theatre part of an endangered species. But I get the sense that it is protected by the incredible passion of those who work there and the wonderful supportive audiences. A passion that has defied government after government increasingly desperate to persuade us that the Arts don’t matter. They have never mattered more. It is a real honour to be invited to participate in that world.”
Performed by three actors—the others are Laila Zaidi (Ackley Bridge) and Rebecca Glendenning-Laycock (Bonnie & Fanny’s Christmas Spectacular)—and North East musician Me Lost Me, aka Jayne Dent, the play runs from Thursday 30 November to Saturday 16 December.
