The Mysterious Mr. Love

Theater goers, get set for an extraordinary play and a terrific performance! On January 8, 9, and 10 San Miguel Play Readers will present "The Mysterious Mr. Love," by British playwright Karoline Leach. Set in England in 1910 this remarkably multi-layered play is about a charming swindler who preys on lonely, vulnerable women. He "loves them and leaves them," taking whatever money and valuables they have after gifting them with a "night of happiness." When he meet his latest victim, Adelaide, a spinster consigned to the back room of the hat shop where she works, things take a dramatic and unexpected turn!

Will his talents as a grifter prevail or will Adelaide test his mettle in ways that will surprise even the most seasoned patron of the theatrical arts? Come along for the ride. This play is chock full of twists and turns.

"The Mysterious Mr. Love, part romance, part psychological thriller, was first seen at London's Comedy Theater in 1997. The period piece is as timely as ever.

The Sunday Telegraph calls it "sturdily constructed, strong on Edwardian atmosphere and full of suspense." "A disconcerting spell of charm and menace," writes the Daily Telegraph, that "keeps you hooked throughout!"

The audience is invited to imagine a set which consists of a hat shop, a promenade along the sea, and a room overlooking an alley in a slightly seedy ocean-front hotel. Come and see what happens! Anne Campbell and Mick Diener team up again – a charming duo-- in the roles of Adelaide and George. Patrick Greene handles lights and sound. And the venerable Lois Reed directs. The venue is the Parish Hall of St. Paul's Church, Calle Cardo 6. Doors open at 7, the play begins at 7:30 or when the house is full. Donation is an astonishingly affordable 30 pesos. Come and enjoy!
