Following their riveting and electrifying five-star play Delivery, acclaimed duo Andy Walker (The Story of Tracy Beaker) and Lesley Manning (Ghostwatch) have teamed up once more to present Love Dance. This heart-warming and uplifting romantic comedy tells of the hilariously rocky path of the two most unlikely characters as they try to find love. A reverse love story for our generation, the play explores the balance of highflying careers and motherhood goals with all the heart and humour of a rom com.
Inspired by a close friend of the creative team, this comic triumph follows accomplished surgeon Rose, who is desperate to have a baby but doesn’t want a long-term relationship. She’s carved out a successful career for herself based on innate ability and a lifetime of hard work, but now her biological clock is ticking – loudly. Her past relationships have ranged from the forgettable to the disastrous, so she needs a man to make her pregnant then disappear from her life. Enter Adam. He’s the last person she’d ever think of having a baby with; he’s immature, disorganised and allergic to hard work. And even worse – he’s a musician. However, in exchange for a sofa to sleep on, he agrees to help her find a suitable father for her child while unaware he’s falling in love with her…
