LOVE+ is a one-woman two-hander. It’s about loving, being loved, being human, and whether those things are intertwined.
What happens to romance when there's a machine who cooks for you, cleans for you, never forgets your birthday or how you like your tea, tells you you're beautiful, holds you when you're crying, and still makes you cum?
It’s not about whether or not we can love machines, because we all already do. It’s about what it’ll be like when they love us back.
★★★★★ A timely and excellent production from a company that will go far – British Theatre Guide
★★★★ A blackly humorous subversion of the love story – The Scotsman
★★★★ Thought-provoking, and idea-rich – The Stage
The kind of tightly-realised show you want everyone to see: the production is as wondrously made as the artificial intelligence it predicts. – Exeunt Magazine
★★★★ With a sharp script and a real vitality to its humour, this is a deft and delightful production. – The Irish Times
