It’s a touching love story about two Americans (Dorothy and Shack) who, stranded in London, find they can’t escape each other…

Sara Topham plays the lead role of Dorothy. Alongside her is Robert Curtis as Shack and an ensemble of three actors: Rosie Holden, Peter Clements and Hugo Bolton.

Marks and Gran are the Olivier award-nominated writers of Von Ribbentrop’s Watch and award-winning TV comedy creators of The New Statesman, Goodnight Sweetheart, Shine on Harvey Moon and returning hit Birds of a Feather.

the show is co-directed by WPT artistic director Brigid Larmour and the venue’s creative associate Shona Morris.

Love Me Do runs from September 27 to October 18 with opening night on October 1.
