NEW PLAY WORKSHOP

LOVE by Kate Cortesi

Directed by Christina Baldwin

A decade after quitting a small arts non-profit, Penelope is approached by former colleagues who want her to join them in exposing their ex-boss’ sexual misconduct. Penelope did have a relationship with the man, but wasn't coerced. In fact, he was one of the great loves of her youth. Or was he? What really happened? What should Penelope do now? Love is a provocative exploration of relationships in which the reckoning of sex and power, accountability and accusation is murky and complex. A raw and nuanced re-investigation of a seminal love grappling with the grey area in our collectively evolving conversation around consent and coercion.
