Tainted Love was presented at the Young Actors Theatre March 2008. It was directed by Hal Iggulden & Ricky Dukes.

SYNOPSIS:

 

Isobel - wife to Gil and mother to Mitchell - died unexpectedly 20 years ago. Intrigued by a remark his grandfather Harvey lets slip, Mitchell decides for the first time in his life that he'd like to know exactly how it happened.


He is drawn into a disturbing world of half truths and vague memories. Lisanne, his sister feels his quest is going nowhere. Their relationship starts to come under strain. Structurally the play is a mix of monologue and naturalistic scenes.

Tainted Love was given a public ‘Page To Stage’ workshop by Stop-Gap Theatre Co in association with Yvonne Arnaud Theatre.


Showcased at the Old Red Lion, October 2005, directed by Jacqui Dickson who also directed the Actors and Writers of London script-in-hand reading featuring Neil Herriot and Nadia Ostacchini, also in 2005.


Given a public script-in-hand reading to celebrate the centenary of Watford Palace Theatre, in the Watford Museum, directed by Jez Bond.
