In a run-down community hall on the edge of town, a woman has been cooking lunch for those in need.
A choir is starting up, run by a volunteer who’s looking for a new beginning. A mother is seeking help in her fight to keep her young daughter from being taken into care. An older man sits silently in the corner, the first to arrive, the last to leave. Outside the rain is falling.
‘An essential watch.’
Time Out on LOVE
Faith, Hope and Charity is the culmination of a trilogy that began with Beyond Caring – ‘Unforgettable’ (The Times) – and followed by LOVE – ‘the National’s play of the year, and then some’ (Evening Standard).
Alexander Zeldin’s new play promises to be another uncompromising theatrical experience that goes to the heart of our uncertain times.
Production supported by The Polonsky Foundation
