Lovestruck: Immersive Theatre Show To Get Hearts Racing This Summer

“Ready for love? Well look no further! Lovestruck have been matching people like you for what feels like an eternity. Using their state of the art hypno-DNA technology, they’re certain you’ll meet someone you find drop-dead gorgeous!

Lovestruck are coming to your area with an exclusive event to get hearts pumping, and brains fizzing. Boasting a 100% ‘perfect match’ success rate, they guarantee you’ll never go on another date again…”

This summer, Paperwork Theatre presents Lovestruck, a multi-location immersive theatrical adventure, mixing live performance, escape room activities, and smartphone technology taking place across three separate locations in the North West. You can watch this exciting new show at Liverpool’s Everyman Theatre, the Shakespeare North Playhouse and Chester’s Storyhouse.

The immersive show will explore the extraordinary ability of ordinary people to make positive change. Catastrophe on a global scale is looming; the impact of the climate crisis is being felt across the planet, as threats of nuclear war and growing political divisions rip throughout global communities.

By empowering audiences to take a stand in the world of Lovestruck against a dangerous capitalist organisation, Paperwork Theatre hopes to ignite ideas for change in the real world.

We’re delighted to be creating Lovestruck this year as Paperwork Theatre turns 10! If you haven’t experienced a Paperwork show before, this is definitely one to try – it’s immersive, darkly comedic and full of unexpected adventure. It’s been a really exciting journey to grow and develop our work with artists, communities and audiences across the last decade, creating bold and playful theatre and experiences for people from all walks of life championing excellence in our region’s arts and culture scene. We’re really excited about what the future holds for us. We’re delighted to be working on this with Frightwig, an exceptional horror theatre company, and some amazing venues and partners.

This July, Paperwork turns 10 years old, and Lovestruck is a celebration of all that we have achieved in that time. It sees us work with both emerging and established artists across digital and live platforms. It sees us bring our most ambitious show yet to Liverpool, Chester and Knowsley, where we have been making work, connecting with audiences, and delivering participatory projects for 10 years.”
