The Love Story attempts to expose the nature of the individual in our relations with one another and our ability to cope of our own accord. The messages which are conveyed are applicable to all of us, and thankfully offer up no simple answer to the human character.The start of the play was a simple love story in which the male role, an extroverted juvenile character with a love for words, manages to endear himself to a frontline psychologist until they progressively fall for each other. However this play attempts to justify the manic vicissitude of human interaction using many of the infinite reasonings that psychology grants us. An example of one of the central messages the play conveyed is that our words and actions with one another are ultimately a hollow condition formed by human experiences, all aimed only to portray the emotions we need to survive as animals but providing our lives with complications and misinterpretations. The script gives the audience an encompassing idea to guide them through the hazardous jungle that can be created when a play touches on many difficult concepts at the same time. Ideas need time to be pondered upon, and this can never be granted to an audience member who is considering the plot and is provided with very little else to guide them through the complex issues. While this problem fundamentally ruins many similar plays, this one succeeded in being quite understandable.Ultimately we are led to realise that, despite the use of many different styles of speech from analytical to natural, despite the character features and flaws, the only constant image that is portrayed is human raw emotion. And this is how the play looks towards being The love story, one that is exemplary of all other stories of human love in differing circumstances. The effects that were indicated in the script were largely achieved, however for a script that relied so heavily on the strong and committed characterisation of the roles there was more to be desired of the actors. This may be forgiven as a case of the first-performance nerves and, as it did through the show, I feel that the acting will improve to reveal a lot more of the scripts potential.
