Out Of Love

27 January 2018 — 3 March 2018

★★★★★ "One of the purest and most honest depictions of lifelong friends to ever grace the stage." Broadway Baby 

★★★★ “A fiery, tender story of female friendship.” Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

★★★★ "a tender, well-crafted piece of writing, particularly refreshing in the way it talks about the pleasures of sex" The Stage

Lorna and Grace do everything together. They share crisps, cigarettes and crushes. That’s what happens when you’re best friends forever.

But when Lorna gets a place at University, and Grace gets pregnant, they suddenly find themselves in starkly different worlds. Can anything bridge the gap between them?

A tale of friendship, love and rivalry over thirty years from award-winning playwright Elinor Cook, winner of the George Devine Award 2013 for Most Promising Playwright.

Her plays include Pilgrims (HighTide/The Yard), Image of An Unknown Woman (Gate Theatre); The Girls Guide to Saving the World (HighTide); The Boy Preference (National Theatre Connections), and This Is Where We Got to When You Came In (Bush Theatre). She adapted Mac Barnett’s Extra Yarn for the Orange Tree in 2016.
