A PLAY charting a couple’s 40-year journey, from initial burst to full bloom, can be seen at the Stephen Joseph Theatre this week.

Love, Love, Love takes on the baby boomer generation as it retires, and finds it full of trouble.

Smoking, drinking, ambitious and paranoid, the couple know the world is changing in 1967 - and they want some of it.

The play was written by Mike Bartlett, who won an Olivier award last year. He was the Pearson playwright in residence at the Royal Court Theatre in 2007 and his latest play, Earthquakes in London, premiered at the National Theatre last year. 

Over the last 36 years, Paines Plough has established itself as a leading new writing company, producing work by a wide range of playwrights across the UK and abroad.

The company is run by artistic directors James Grieve and George Perrin, who received the Stage award for special achievement in regional theatre at a recent awards ceremony.

Love, Love, Love can be seen at 7.45pm Friday and 2.45pm and 7.45pm Saturday.
