LOVE, NORMAN – LGBT DRAMA FOR FOUR ACTORS ABOUT SUICIDE, FAMILY AND EVERYTHING THAT COMES WITH THAT

When Estelle decides to ‘dump’ her ill father Frank on her brother Norman for a few days while she is out of town, she has no idea that Norman is about to take his own life but also that a visit to Norman’s apartment would end up being the intervention, reckoning, counselling, cleansing and reunion session that the family didn’t plan for but certainly needs. Without a mother, Estelle would go on to overcompensate for the lack of one, Norman would lose his nerve without her presence in his life and their father would blame Norman for her death. In Love, Norman, a LGBT drama for four actors, Estelle and her family’s dysfunction are exposed in a major way all the while happening in Norman’s tiny apartment…this is Norman’s, not Estelle’s story after all. And in keeping with the theme, it is Norman’s attempt at suicide, homosexuality and alleged son, Jerome which the play reveals to us all and grapples with in the most sincere way.

This is him, this is Norman and he sends his love. A beautifully written drama that is both challenging and human at the same time.
