Ayckbourn classic at Theatre Royal

Things We Do For Love
Things We Do For Love

Actress and singer Natalie Imbruglia puts in an appearance at the Theatre Royal in Nottingham when she stars in a touring production Alan Ayckbourn’s hit play Things We Do For Love.

It can be seen at the venue from Monday, April 28 to Saturday, May 3.

Making hilarity and ingenuity from the things we do for love, this sharp and insightful drama about love’s trials and tribulations sees the UK’s greatest living playwright at the peak of his art.

In South West London, Nikki and her fiancé Hamish move in with Nikki’s old school-friend Barbara, who lives in immaculate order on the middle floor of her converted house.

Unfortunately Hamish is everything that Barbara despises. But their mutual, instant distaste for each other is a hostility which hides deeper feelings; feelings that could destroy an engagement and a friendship, creating repercussions for everyone - including the downstairs lodger, lovelorn postman and part-time plumber Gilbert, who has a secret fixation with his landlady.

In an intriguing set - cleverly revealing a limited view of the rooms above and below Barbara’s flat - bedroom farce develops into something more complex as the two adversaries fall head over heels in lust.

Natalie Imbruglia began her career in the globally successful Australian soap-opera Neighbours, where she played Beth Brennan.

She went on to become one of the biggest pop sensations in Europe.

Her smash hit single Torn, and the subsequent album, Left of the Middle, sold seven million copies worldwide and won her three Grammy nominations and two Brit Awards.

Tickets to see Things We Do For Love at the Theatre Royal Nottingham are £32.50 - £15 plus concessions. Call 0115 989 5555.
