Simon Slater was the composer and sound designer for Mike Bartlett’s ‘Love, Love, Love’, directed by Rachel O’Riordan at the Lyric Hammersmith.
“It’s 1967. The Beatles are performing All You Need Is Love on global TV for the very first time. Kenneth and Sandra meet.
Love, Love, Love charts one couple’s journey forty years from the era of free love to the beginning of the 21st Century. Smoking, drinking, affectionate and paranoid, Kenneth and Sandra build their life and family together in a time of increasing national prosperity, when the future is always better than the past.
Now they’re retired and their children grown, but why hasn’t it all worked out the way they thought?
What happens when the children you think you’ve done everything for, believe you haven’t done enough?
A family go to war over their personal politics in Mike Bartlett’s funny and scathing look at the opposing values of two very different generations.”
The play is running until the 4th April 2020.
