Directed by Tanya Goldberg.

Sexy, powerful and hilarious, LOVEPLAY challenges the whys and ways we aspire to love.

A voracious search through time and history, lust, abuse and grace, LOVEPLAY weaves a trail of encounters and seductions that take place in the same location across 2000 years. Over 10 scenes 6 actors play 31 characters, trying to find their own way to survive in a terrifying new age – whether post-Roman occupation Britain or a present-day London dating agency.

Ride On’s first theatre work broke all existing box office records for the Belvoir Street Downstairs Theatre. With nightly queues around the block for tickets, this quietly charming piece announced the arrival of a serious team of artists serving up theatre pulsing with life.

“Ride On Theatre have certainly ticked the biggest box on their mission statement – providing ‘a community of artists who believe in theatre’s enlightening and transforming power.” SydneyStage.com
