Love Song - Play

This play is only running until February 17th in London so catch it quickly! It stars Neve Campbell (Scream trilogy and Party of Five), Kristen Johnston (Sally in Third Rock from the Sun), Michael McKean (This is Spinal Tap, Alias, The X-Files) and Cilian Murphy (The Scarecrow in Batman Begins and 28 Days Later).

The story follows Beane (Murphy) who is an exile from life – an oddball. His well-meaning sister Joan (Johnston) and brother-in-law Harry (McKean) try and make time for him in their busy lives, but no one can get through. Following a burglary on his apartment, Joan is baffled to find her brother blissfully happy and tries to unravel the story behind Beane's mysterious new love Molly (Campbell). It is superbly acted and very funny yet moving. Bittesweet is the best wod to sum it up. Beane dominates the story and Murphy does a great job playing him. If you get a chance definately go and see this play before it finishes.
