Winner of the Gratiaen Award 2018, ‘The One Who Loves You So’ is a candid and honest love story; a play about our universal struggle for connection as it copes with the complexities of short-term intimacy and asks what becomes of love when it has no recourse to future illusions.
The play pushes audiences to reflect on their own inner landscapes, while appealing to the specific yet universal desire within each of us to be loved. It highlights the frailty and vulnerability of youth, gender, sexuality, queerness and class in Colombo.
In conversation with Arun Welandawe-Prematillake, the event will focus on Dramatised Readings with Brandon Ingram.
