Love, Question MarkWritten and directed by Robert Gillespie

“Plenty of wonderful one-liners to enjoy, as well as a deliciously satirical view of the conventional wisdom on the subject trotted out by religious authorities and their ilk. Love, Question Mark is often laugh-out-loud funny; though in Brechtian style there are moments of humour that leave you questioning your taste and morals.” Entertainment Focus

“Excellently acted thought-provoking theatre…An outstandingly brilliant performance by Clare Cameron who steals the stage from the very second she appears on it…Sessions plays this part brilliantly and thoroughly convincingly.” Backstage Pass

Love, Question Mark is a brilliant piece with which to open the New Diorama Theatre. Robert Gillespie has cleverly penned a contemplative piece that throws up resounding, trans-generational issues about relationships and loneliness…A stand-out performance by Clare Cameron.” – Spoonfed

“Fast-paced and very funny…A sharp and witty show, deftly directed by Gillespie…Wonderfully performed by Stuart Sessions and Clare Cameron. It challenges us to be curious about our ideas of love, and to look for our own truth.” – British Theatre Guide

“Gillespie’s new play challenges us to think outside the box…The writing which teeters into black comedy is witty, acerbic with lots of brilliant one liners, many with a wealth of meaning behind them.” – ThePublicReviews.com

“The only difference between prostitution and those who sell themselves into marriage, is in the price and length of the contract.” So said Simone de Beauvoir.

Three years after the death of his wife, Michael gets a shock. Just a pair of legs on a bus but it’s enough to unlock long-buried desires. Suddenly he wants to know: What is love? Is it wrong to buy sex? Is marriage the best answer? And why does the Hormonic Jazz Band always prevail?

Catch up with this racy, raw, comical-tragical show. Career around the emotional hairpin bends, stub your toe on the laughs, be shocked to the very core, just don’t miss it…

Writer-director Robert Gillespie explores the curious gap between what we say we want and what we actually do.

First performed at The New Diorama Theatre and revived at The Courtyard in Hoxton and Tabard Theatre Chiswick in 2012.
