A haunting and beautiful tale of past and present lives intertwining, Lovesong tells the story of a marriage through the recollections - wistful and bitter - of an elderly couple, one of whom is about to die. Their young selves are also on stage, and the two couples weave between each other, their words and movements plaiting together to leave the unforgettable pattern of a lifetime. Crying is not mandatory, but only the hard of heart will remain completely unmoved.
Abi Morgan's screenwriting includes the film The Iron Lady and Birdsong, from the novel by Sebastian Faulks, for TV.
