‘Oh come on. That’s different. I’m not abandoning him. My name won’t be on the birth certificate. Legally he can’t belong to me.’
‘But you would belong to him.’
Modern Romance is a sensational piece of new writing that looks at love and how our experience of it today is different from any other moment in history.
Like a dramatic scrapbook, the show pieces together the fragments of a 21st century love affair. It centres on Adam and Isaac, two lovers whose relationship is thrown into question when Adam agrees to donate semen to a beautifully icy co-worker.
The play is a study of jealousy, technology and dreams. Fantasy, Tinder, atheism, lipstick, song, Obama and violence come together to question whether love can survive in the age of technology.
