★★★★ FOR HOW LOVE IS SPELT

We're absolutely thrilled with four star reviews for How Love Is Spelt from Broadway World, Dress Circle Antics, The Upcoming, London Box Office, London Theatre1, London Theatre Reviews & Sardines Magazine as well as ★★★★ from The Stage: 

Right up until the last scene, director Charlotte Peters dwells on the play’s painfully recognisable humour and warmly captured details, making for a show that is deeply funny without detracting from a gradually accumulating sense of melancholy.

We'd love to share this piece with you. To book, please visit https://southwarkplayhouse.co.uk/
