This Love Thing

This Love ThingBy Marina Carr

February/March 1991

Co-produced with Pigsback Theatre Company, Dublin

This Love Thing takes a highly original and comic look at love relationships. Leonardo da Vinci, Michaelangelo, Jesus Christ, Mary Magdalen, Mona Lisa and The Love Doctor are just some of the characters who come to life in the play’s wacky, absurdist world of love and romance. The combination of renaissance romance with modern day mating rituals is guaranteed to provoke thought and laughter.
