Szeretlek: A Hungarian Love Story

The Grand Salto Theatre

Based on a true story. Romance blossoms in post WW2 Hungary when a school teacher from the city meets the village intellectual. An impractical hat. A knife fight. A missing bird. The Grand Salto Theatre brings to life this unique courtship with mask, movement and song.

“Stroke of genius, Spur of the moment glee.” -Hoopla

Who, Me.

Rob Lloyd

Doctor Who is about to face his greatest challenge: his number one fan.

“A great show.” Terrance Dicks (Script Editor of Doctor Who 1969 to 1974)
“A truly funny man.” Katy Manning (Jo Grant. Doctor Who 1971 to 1973)
