Synopses & Reviews
Celine McAnespie, an employee of the Costly Coffee global empire, is dragged off to a weekend training course just days after she's started her new job. Her Eco-warrior boyfriend Jarvis is furious with her for taking the job, partly because he's about to spend the weekend at the company's global headquarters demonstrating against them. Weaving together sex, intrigue, greed, and protest, Love Freaks asks whether the course of true love can survive the ravages of transnational business interests.
Freely adapted from Marivaux's Double Inconstancy, Iain Heggie's new play is ferociously filthy and cuttingly contemporary.
