Simon is lost, abandoned by James, his partner of twenty-three years. He is alone for the first time, but then he finds Ben, the Great Love of his life, a young man seventeen years his junior, and finds himself rejuvenated and fulfilled in a way he never knew possible. They share the complications of falling in love, undergoing upheavals, and experiencing change, until it all falls apart; but does it?
A brand new original one-act musical based on a true story. Full of comedy, heartfelt emotion and drama, this contemporary chamber musical features a cast of just two performers and live accompaniment. A show bound to make you laugh and cry, The Verb To Love will take you on a unique theatrical journey that fans of great writing such as Sondheim, Jonathan Larson and Jason Robert Brown are sure to love.
The Verb, ‘To Love’ explores, in an intimate sung-through musical, the complications of changing relationships, and the power of different kinds of love; ‘The verb ‘to love’’ has so many meanings…’
The Verb, ‘To Love’ is the world premiere of this new musical
