Description - City Love by Simon Vinnicombe
I feel like asking him to stay. To never leave this room. But I know that soon he will leave and...
I'm going to ring him that night. I'm not going to write anything down. I might not even say anything. Just listen to him breathe.
Lucy and Jim are alone. To the world they seem to be doing alright: they have jobs, friends, ambitions (well, sort of). But inside they are drowning. Until their chance meeting on a London night bus leads to a desperate search for redemption, each through the other. Inevitably, though, their hopes for salvation are dashed as deep-rooted insecurities rise to the surface.
City Love is an unflinching look at the opposing human needs for companionship and self-destruction. Sharp observations transform the mundane into the epic in this grim, witty and agonizingly real play that will pierce the heart of anyone who has ever been in love.
