|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.
