The premiere of "Lovefool", the new English-language one-woman play written and directed by Lithuanian-Luxembourg filmmaker and actress Gintare Parulyte, will take place at the Théâtre National du Luxembourg on Saturday 26 November 2022 at 20:00.
The play stars London-based Croatian-American theatre maker and actress Kristin Winters as Grace, a young woman who is hungry for affection and looking for love in the wrong places. "Lovefool" explores with brutal vulnerability and humour the effects of toxic masculinity and inequality, as well as life governed by often confusing gender expectations. It is also about hope for a better world and the power of (self-) awareness and radical honesty as tools to heal and be able to lead a life filled with true love, self-respect and purpose.
In the words of Gintare Parulyte, "Lovefool" is "an intimate, witty, and unapologetically honest feminist play about topics ranging from trauma to addictions and empowerment".
The production has received support from the National Culture Fund (FOCUNA) and Luxembourg's Ministry of Culture. It was first performed at the 2021 Monodrama Festival.
Five performances are scheduled to take place at the Théâtre National du Luxembourg: on 26 November at 20:00 (opening night), on 27 November at 17:00 and on 30 November and 7 and 8 December 2022 at 20:00. Further information and tickets are available at: https://www.tnl.lu/copie-de-zauberberg.
