The Great War | Lovely Head

Momentum Theatre Productions

The price of love: Tales of obsession, power and facing the truth

Momentum Theatre Productions is proud to present the Irish premiere of The Great War along with Lovely Head in a night of two dark comedies by Neil LaBute.

Lines drawn, gauntlets down, tongues sharpened. A brutal and often hilarious battle of truths where divorce might just reveal more than we would prefer to admit. The Great War will take no prisoners.


★★★★ “Mr LaBute delivers one of his most illuminating character studies to date”
– NY Times

Trick or tryst? Lovely Head unveils the secrets of an obsessive recurrent rendez-vous. When letting go is not an option.


★★★★ “Funny, penetrating, vivid and meaningful. LaBute definitely knows how to land punches (of the non-physical sort) and still keep everyone strapped in their seat on the emotional roller-coaster”
