For All The Love You Lost

For All the Love You Lost is presented by Morosophy at [email protected]’s Hall. It’s an original piece written and directed by Joshua Thomas that follows Alex and Harriet on a first date in Central London after meeting online.

entertaining and enthusiastically performed

There’s more to it than that, as might be expected. The surreal seascape movement sequence that opens the play might seem to be a detached prologue but its significance becomes apparent later. Alex is nervous at the prospect of his first date in a long time, gaining some confidence through advice from his mate on his appearance and how to approach the evening. Harriet is feeling very much the same, but has her sister to turn to and the interventions of her mother. At the restaurant some attempts by the staff to help the situation create comic moments that add to those in other scenes

The storyline is interspersed with verse monologues from various characters that provide insights into their lives and some homespun philosophy. There are memories to recall and flashbacks to relive in a work that successfully utilises naturalism, surrealism and epic theatre. Including so much creates something of a tickbox of skills and styles learned at drama school, but it is still rewarding to see those on display.

For All the Love You Lost is entertaining and enthusiastically performed. It also contain the sort of twist that always pleases.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society.
