Riverside Theatres presents Luka Lesson’s Agapi & Other Kinds of Love at the Lennox Theatre from the 29 February to 1 March.

Based on Plato’s The Symposium, Agapi & Other Kinds of Love begins with Socrates telling a banquet of friends everything he learned from a mysterious lover named Diotima. The gods then take the audience on a journey – collapsing time and space to arrive in modern day Athens, where the two reincarnations of the Ancient lovers fall in love (again) in the midst of a riot.

Equal parts rap concert, poetic musical & classic history lesson, Agapi & Other Kinds of Love shows us how love prevails despite the trials and tribulations of the ages.
