Love, Loss & Chianti 


Thirty/20 Theatre, Assembly Festival and Suzanna Rosenthal Ltd presents

Witty’ and ‘enchanting’ (★★★★ The Telegraph), Love, Loss & Chianti is an intimate new production

starring Robert Bathurst (Cold Feet, Downton Abbey, Toast of London) and Rebecca Johnson (The Trip, 

The Flood).
A delicious double-bill, Love, Loss & Chianti beautifully combines critically acclaimed poet Christopher

Reid’s hauntingly powerful exploration of grief (A Scattering) with his raucous verse comedy, following a

reckless attempt at rekindling an old flame (The Song of Lunch) - what could possibly go wrong?
Directed by Jason Morrell and set to spectacular animation by celebrated cartoonist Charles Peattie, it’s the perfect night out for anyone who’s ever loved, lost or been on a rubbish date…


★★★★ ‘Consistently witty verse… gorgeous phrase-making… enchanting’ (The Telegraph on The Song of Lunch) 
★★★★ ‘A crisp, full-bodied, powerful drama’ (Mail on Sunday for The Song of Lunch)

★★★★★ ‘A joy from start to finish’ (The Times on The Song of Lunch)

‘Beautiful and moving… a masterwork’ (Costa Prize judges on A Scattering)
