LOVE IS A STRANGER – BRITISH ONE ACT DRAMA ABOUT FORBIDDEN LOVE
Vivian is a young transgender call girl who has fallen in love for the first time with one of her clients. She dreams of them running away together and has high hopes, until it all comes crashing down around her because of a huge publicity scandal. Her client, it turns out, never gave her his real name and he is, in fact a famous MP, with a wife and a little girl. He is shamed by the press and loses everything, including his life. The play begins after their dirty secret has been made public and deals with three very different characters – Clive, the destroyed MP, Vivian, the call girl and Lucia, a burnt out publicist whose aim it is to reap a profit from the scandal and get Vivian to tell her side of the story.
A great three hander that explores the human condition: How we deal with sudden awful changes in circumstances. Some will profit, some will fight and some will despair. It’s what at the end of that road that counts.
