Loving Her, Loving Him
06 Sep - 09 Sep
“Loving Her, Loving Him” is a brilliant political romance performed by two of the regions strongest actors Joel Parry, recently seen in Jimmy McGovern’s new BBC drama “Broken”, and Dean Gregory, who appeared with Maxine Peake in “Hamlet”. It looks to the past and the future to illuminate the present. It’s scandalous, nearly libellous, and often hilarious material from one of the region’s most acclaimed emerging playwrights, Stephen M Hornby.
It’s June 2022 and Greater Manchester's first Mayor has just been elected as Prime Minister. That’s just one of the amazing political scenarios that the award-winning Inkbrew Productions explore in their new play “Loving Her, Loving Him” by Stephen M Hornby.
The major political events of four decades are seen through the eyes of two men. They chart the rise and fall of Jeremy Corbyn, as they conduct an illicit affair that stretches from the last days of Gordon Brown’s Government to first of Andy Burnham’s; over a decade of being on the inside of the Labour Party, hiding in plain sight. Back in the 1970s, two strangely similar men meet by chance in a hotel in Blackpool at Margaret Thatcher’s first Conservative Party Conference as Leader. They also conduct a secret affair over the next dozen years. The extremes of Thatcher’s Government mirror their tempestuous relationship as the two men struggle with each other, loving your enemy and the pace of change.
