SUMMARY

Neal and Rachel are an over-worked, under-sexed couple stuck in the exhausting transition between being stressed-out medical students and comfortable, middle class doctors. Into this highly charged household steps Neal's old friend, Richie. This blast-from-the-past is a drug-stealing, alcoholic and altogether dodgy slacker who throws one massive spanner into the works. Impulsive and charismatic, Richie positions himself precariously between the couple, slowly untangling the knots of their relationship. Combining the aggressive sexuality of Mamet with the warped naturalism of Pinter, Penhall's dark comedy is an under-performed masterpiece of tension and manipulation.

Love and Understanding is presented by Wield the Matter, an award-winning theatre company, comprising some of Cambridge University’s most experienced acting talent.

Admission: £6.50(£8.50)
