Written by Abi Morgan, with translation and direction by Simone Spiteri, the play ‘Lovesong: L-Għanja tan-Namra’ is set to premiere at Theatre Next Door.

Lovesong: L-Għanja tan-Namra

Produced by FM Theatre Productions and performed in Maltese, ‘Lovesong: L-Għanja tan-Namra’ follows the intimate journey of Billy and Maggie, now in the mature stages of their relationship.

Lovesong: L-Għanja tan-Namra

Veteran actors of stage and screen Josette Ciappara, Marceline Galea, Mark Mifsud and Lino Mintoff will be playing the roles of Billy and Maggie, the same couple, but in different stages of the relationship.

Lovesong: L-Għanja tan-Namra

Though many years have passed, their past still lingers on in the present. As the story of the couple unfolds, the play flashes back to the seminal moments experienced early on in their relationship.

Young love is the foundation of any long-term kinship but the challenges faced can chip away at a bond as much as they can strengthen.

Moreover, this production is a special one as it marks the return of Mintoff to the world of theatre after an 18-year hiatus from the stage.

Peppered with original music by Chris Galea, past and present are interwoven throughout the piece with poignant movement by choreographer Moritz Zavan Stoeckle.

Lovesong: L-Għanja tan-Namra will be staged at Theatre Next Door from 16th to 25th of February with subtitles in English on the 18th and 25th. For tickets and more information visit www.tnd.com.mt
