Laurence Boswell directs Michael Weller's drama, Fifty Words, which gets its title from the idea that there are fifty words for love. This drama, in which Claire Price and Richard Clothier star, comes to London's Arcola theatre following a triumphant run in Bath as part of the Ustinov's America season. Oscar-nominated American playwright Weller portrays the less glamorous side of marriage as Adam and Jan send their child away for a sleep-over, and so face their first night alone together in years.

The Arcola Theatre building is a classic contemporary fringe venue, a converted paint manufacturing factory that offers studio spaces, a versatile auditorium and a pop up tent that hosts a variety of shows.
