Per­for­mance Live: Love

The Guardian - The Guide - - Sound & Vision - MB

In con­junc­tion with the Na­tional Theatre and BBC Arts, ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer David Sch­wim­mer brings us an adap­ta­tion of Alexan­der Zeldin’s hous­ing cri­sis play, which pre­miered at Lon­don’s

Na­tional Theatre in 2016. Its stark so­cial re­al­ism makes it a tough watch but there’s com­pas­sion on dis­play in this tale of fam­i­lies placed in tem­po­rary ac­com­mo­da­tion. An in­tense in­ter­ro­ga­tion of what hap­pens to those who fall through the cracks in the wel­fare sys­tem that also dou­bles as a por­trait of hope and re­silience.
