In his first feature film, National Theatre Artist in Residence, Alexander Zeldin has written and directed LOVE. Based on the play of the same name which premiered in the Dorfman Theatre in December 2016 in a co-production with Birmingham Rep, before transferring to the Rep in 2017.
It tells the story of three families brought together and placed in cramped temporary accommodation in the run up to Christmas. A middle-aged man and his elderly mum, a young family with a baby on the way; a newly arrived woman from Sudan. Strangers. Forced together. No space is personal.
