Brighton Festival Fringe 2018
Always With A Love That’s True
Sequel to last year’s show ‘And Love Walked In’
Love is undying. Death is just around the corner. Listen, time’s passing. Who knows what’s
beyond the grave? The ageing psychotherapist, troubled and insecure, cannot trust his wife,
his clients or himself in this darkly comic sequel to last year’s sell-out show. Wired Theatre
returns to the quiet house in Hove in this original, entertaining, promenade production which
presents, in close-up, lives trapped on a rollercoaster ride towards an inevitable end.
Provocative, tantalising and often mysterious, WIRED aims to create another lively piece in
an authentic domestic location.

Review of “Always With A Love That’s True” – (Brighton Fringe – 5/5/18. Review by Michael Sabbaton )
Fantastic work from, Wired Theatre, who are playing throughout this year’s Brighton Fringe. Their new show, Always with a Love that’s True, picks up the saga of womanising, alcoholic therapist, Andrew, as he attempts to squirm his way back through ethically-challenging relationships and self-indulged mis-adventure.
Set and played in an actual house, the audience become fused with the close action as, moment by moment, each scene unfolds and tumbles into the next. From conservatory to hall, from staircase to sitting room, we inhabit this man’s sink-hole-life of love, loss and manipulation.
Wired weave a complex web of theatrical interaction, dancing through frames of naturalism, documentary realism, dream and the surreal. Characters change course throughout from the comedic (with exquisitely timed, unfolding routines and smile inducing song and dance) to the tragic (where life and loneliness are left to unravel). Folded into this structure is, ever-present, a sense of the surreal and a mature presence of self-awareness and this is where Wired’s theatrical language truly resides. They keep you guessing, they make you smile, they make you comfortable then shake the rug from underneath to expose not just tragedy, not just comedy but a life complicated and complex.
It’s fun, challenging and sometimes weird but we are safe in Wired’s, welcoming, world – after all, we’re the guests of honour! It’s like we shouldn’t be there…but we ARE and without our translucent presence it just wouldn’t work. Wired’s work is a constantly reflective menagerie where all the time they are watching us, watching them, watching us but always, if you pardon the pun, with a love that’s (certainly) true!
