Love, Loss & Chianti presents A Scattering and The Song of Lunch
Love, Loss & Chianti opens with A Scattering which is Reid’s semi-autobiographical, startlingly beautiful meditation on grief, for which he was awarded the Costa Book of the Year. The show is followed by The Song of Lunch, his fictional raucous comedy set in a Soho restaurant, a reckless attempt to rekindle the flame of an old love affair - what could possibly go wrong
With a stage setting of spectacular animation by the cartoonist Charles Peattie, the verse swings along in the hands of two superlative actors; an original and thrilling theatrical event of love and loss, with a lot of Chianti in the second half…
