Now, Alexander Zeldin returns to the National Theatre with a new devised play, Love, premiering on the Dorfman stage. Again the story centres around vulnerable people and pertinent issues: a Sudanese immigrant, a young family expecting a baby and a middle-aged man caring for his elderly mother are squashed into temporary accommodation. It's almost Christmas and they stand little chance of getting their own space.
Expect a tender portrait, with all the naturalism of a play devised during the rehearsal process and none of the hollow moralising or cheesy cheerfulness so common in Christmas theatre.
Public booking for Love at the National Theatre opens at 8:30 am on Thursday 29 September.
