LOVEPLAY is about a woman, Sarah, who loses her great love, is betrayed by her best friend, and ultimately discovers a greater love that is just and transforms the lives of people she touches. Her transformation provides the heart of this intriguing new play. Prentice’s work, which uses evocative music and visuals, “paints a life-and-death world of the unseen we create and carry until the final confrontation with The Ghost Paradox: The only way to banish a ghost is to embrace it,” according to Prentice.

Award winning playwright and internationally acclaimed Pinter scholar Penelope Prentice has had plays performed in New York, Washington, Buffalo, London, Australia, Ireland, Greece, Turkey and China. Honored with an Edward Albee Foundation Fellowship, a MacDowell Fellowship and two New York Foundation for the Arts Sponsorships, she held five Playwright-in-Residences including the Chautauqua Institute and New York’s New Perspectives Theatre.

One of the five who planned the First International Women Playwrights Conference, Penelope Prentice has two books on England's foremost living dramatist, Harold Pinter, including The Pinter Ethic: The Erotic Aesthetic and poetry from her book Capturing the Light, set to music by the distinguished young American composer Eric Ewazen, premiered as Original Light at the Juilliard School at Lincoln Center last year.

Love play is a Sponsored Project of The New York Foundation for the Arts.

Cast: Nick Battiste, Jeannie Dalton, Michael Frederic and Jill Melanie Wirth
