Aspect of Love

The first major London revival of Andrew Lloyd Webber, Don Black and Charles Hart’s Aspects of Love has just started at the Menier Chocolate Factory in London. Running to 26 September, the show is directed by Trevor Nunn, who originally directed its world premiere and has returned for this new, intimate version.

Based on David Garnett’s novel of the same name the show tells the story of love and loss across three generations of a family and friends, set against the background of 1940s France and Italy. Alex Dillingham, a young student travelling through France, falls in love with the alluring actress Rose Vibert.

As the pair embark on a passionate affair, the unexpected arrival of Alex’s uncle changes their lives forever.  A love story spanning twenty years binding six people and three generations as they come to appreciate that love changes everything.
