Chloe Moss’s play How Love Is Spelt is to receive its first major revival at Southwark Playhouse this September.
Brickdust and Project One are to present Chloe Moss’s How Love Is Spelt directed by Charlotte Peters (Associate Director War Horse UK Tour and An Inspector Calls West End) from 4 – 28th September 2019 at Southwark Playhouse.
Set in 2004, How Love Is Spelt tells the story of Peta, who’s new in town and ready for whatever London has to throw at her. She’s looking for romance, for friendship, for exciting people to lead her on big adventures. But being an independent woman in the new millennium isn’t easy, especially when there’s a constant reminder of the life you’re trying to escape. With each new encounter, Peta flirts with what might have been, but has the journey to London put enough distance between her and her past?
This nostalgic and honest meditation on love and relationships from Susan Smith Blackburn Prize-winning playwright Chloe Moss (This Wide Night, Soho Theatre; Dickensian, BBC), was first produced and performed at the Bush Theatre in 2004.
