Love Suicides is John Romeril’s homage to the eighteenth century Japanese master playwright, Chikamatsu Monzaemon. In a daring blend of cultures the play plots the destiny of two lovers—one from Osaka, the other from Perth.
The result is an epic story of our times: audacious in its conception, breathtaking in its vision, passionate in its realisation. It is an important play from a highly original and provocative playwright.
