The Half Life of Love
The half life of love is forever.
It remains toxic, poisoning life long after love is over. Alex sits in his chair drinking red wine and listening to music, numb to all but his day to day existence. A sudden knock on the door late at night and Connor has turned up; 17, drunk, disorderly, a mess in the guise of a fit young lover.
How does love and nurture turn to rejection and hatred? This latest play from Gail Louw is a thrilling examination of the complex relationships of adopted parents, their children and gay partners.
Gail Louw is an international award-winning playwright whose play Duwayne won the Best New Play at Brighton Fringe in 2014. Her work includes Blonde Poison (previously seen at the Mill Studio) which was acclaimed as “one of the finest pieces of solo theatre ever to have been performed” by WhatsOnStage and is soon to play at the Sydney Opera House.
