Elinor Cook’s Out of Love explores the complexities of female friendship, the pressures of growing up, and the intensity of the ties that bind. Grace and Lorna are used to doing everything together – sharing mixtapes, insecurities, and ambitions. Nothing can tear them apart, until one day, they find themselves in starkly different situations. Spanning a thirty year period, Out of Love deep dives into the entwined lives of these two women, as changing circumstances bend, break, and test what it means to be a ‘best friend’.

Elinor Cook has recently written for Killing Eve (Season 3) and on forthcoming Apple limited series, The Essex Serpent.

This play is showing as a double bill with Holes. Find out more about the BOVTS Summer Festival at the Wardrobe Theatre here.
