“Perhaps it is true that we do not really exist until there is someone there to see us existing, that we are not wholly alive until we are loved”

Otto and Chloe meet on a flight between London and Paris, by the time they have picked up their bags they are in love.

It's beautiful, marvellous and wonderful...until it isn't.

Adapted from the acclaimed novel by modern day philosopher Alain de Botton, this brand new show puts love under the philosophical microscope, exploring every detail of its wonder, joy, pain and absurdity.

Featuring the French Revolution, chocolate allergies, passive aggressive squash and a calculation of the exact probability of falling love at first sight on a British Airways flight, Essays in Love is funny, smart, intensely moving and deeply relatable to every human being who has ever fallen into and out of love.

"Totally Unpredictable" - Time Out UK
"witty, funny, sophisticated" - Spectator UK

Starring Leon Wadham (Giddy), directed by Oliver Driver
Adapted by Eli Kent and Oliver Driver from the novel by Alain de Botton
