Set in 2004, How Love Is Spelt tells the story of Peta, who’s new in town and ready for whatever London has to throw at her. She’s looking for romance, for friendship, for exciting people to lead her on big adventures. This nostalgic and honest meditation on love and relationships from prize-winning playwright Chloë Moss was first produced and performed at the Bush Theatre in 2004.
Michelle Collins will star as Marion in the first major revival of Chloë Moss’s play, and joining her will be Nigel Boyle (Line of Duty, Peaky Blinders), Benjamin O’Mahony (BBC’s Ripper Street), Yana Penrose (A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Regent’s Park Open Air Theatre), Larner Wallace-Taylor (An Inspector Calls, UK tour), and Duncan Moore (Windows and Caste, Finborough Theatre).
During her 30-year career, Michelle Collins has worked extensively in television, film, and theatre. Although perhaps best known for her leading roles in two of Britain’s most popular soaps, EastEnders and Coronation Street, Michelle has a host of other notable television credits to her name including 2000 Acres of Sky and The Illustrated Mum (for which she won an International Emmy Award).
