What's Love Got To Do With It?

What's it All About?

Do love and marriage really ‘go together like a horse and carriage’, or can you indeed ‘have one without the other’?!

Midland Players are back on-stage at last, to provide the laughs you’ve been crying out for over the past year! We bring you an evening banquet of comedy served up in 3 delicious one act helpings, in which you’ll encounter:

A writer of steamy hospital romance novels with a mysterious critic, and her scheming sharp-witted secretary who is doing the work of Cupid. (In ‘The Stepmother’ by Arnold Bennett)

Two married couples with their eyes on each other’s spouses, trying to figure out what’s to be done when you’re respectable, English, and one has made promises to mother. (In ‘Overruled’ by George Bernard Shaw)

An unromantic suitor with a touch of lunacy, and the long-suffering father of a grown-up daughter who might finally get wed if only she’d just stop putting her foot in her mouth. (in ‘The Proposal’ by Anton Chekhov)

When it comes to marriage, this show really does ask: what’s love got to do with it? Is it all just a game? You might not get any answers, but you will get your ribs tickled by these three very different ‘takes’ on relationships.
