LoveBites opens in Perth

LoveBites PerthJames Millar and Peter Rutherford’s song cycle Love Bites has opened its Perth season.

Sally Burton’s Onward Productions is producing the show in the west.

The Perth season follows extraordinary success for the show in Sydney, where it played two successful seasons. It then played a season in New York, and now Perth has a chance to see the show.

Love Bites is a joyous, quirky, sexy, sassy, wise, hilarious and (sometimes) heartbreaking exploration of the alpha and omega of one of life’s biggest puzzles: romance.

The show is a collection of bite-sized vignettes of how modern romantic relationships start, and how they end…or end up. Told through the stories of seven different couples, we experience sudden love, forbidden love, true love, self-love, sexual love, unrequited love, and love that just isn’t enough.

Capturing one character’s perspective in the split-second that love strikes (Act 1); their other-half then reveals how it ends up (Act 2) – each character’s story acting as a ‘bookend’ to the relationship.

Love Bites was nominated for a 2008 Sydney Theatre Award.

The Perth season stars James Millar, Amelia Cormack, David Harris and Sophia Ragavelas.

The show is playing at the Playhouse Theatre until July 11. Bookings:
