About Losing Louis
Set in a family bedroom in two time frames, the 1950s and present day, we see the effects of Louis' infidelity reverberating in his own lifetime, and in the aftermath of his death. The unfolding family saga is compelling and, as more and more is revealed, everything makes perfect sense, while not being wholly predictable. Although one would not imagine this to be the most likely material for amusement, perhaps the most striking thing about the play are the many excellently constructed and equally excellently delivered jokes, along with situations themselves that border on the farcical.
Interwoven events from the past and present blend together in this touching new comedy.
Secrets that refuse to remain buried erupt as Jewish and non-Jewish family members are brought together, after years of separation, to face it out in the bedroom - the place where all the confusion began.
Losing Louis will star Lynda Bellingham, Jason Durr, David Horovitch, Brian Protheroe and Alison Steadman.
