LATE NIGHT LOVE
Radios. Romance. Richard Gere.
“Fantastic art from every day observation and overhearing, folded around political and cultural sensibility then released to fly”
The Verb, BBC Radio Three
Surprising, confusing and boundary pushing. It is not afraid to be absurd, and that is wonderful to see. An excellent example of what devised theatre can do"

A Younger Theatre
Somewhere in the static between radio stations, Eggs Collective present Late Night Love, a tender and ridiculous show that clambers up your drainpipe with a rose between its teeth.
Inspired by the confessional radio show of the same name, Late Night Love is an unflinching attempt to unpick the truth from the fiction of chocolate boxes and untangle the reality of adulthood from the promise of power ballads.
Raw-edged and warm-hearted, tune in to Late Night Love, where teenage crushes wrangle with real life romance, saxophones cry and secrets crackle from radios in the dark.
“A powerful antidote to the world today. Joyous, warm, full”
"Funny, touching and authentic"
