Following its run at the Hope Mill Theatre, Katy Lipson for Aria Entertainment and Hope Mill Theatre have announced the transfer of their production of Aspects of Love to the Southwark Playhouse.

From the cobbled streets of Paris to the mountains of the Pyrenees, Aspects of Love is a sweeping, epic and heart-breaking love story spanning seventeen years. Passion, desire, family ties and friendship bind six people and three generations together as they come to appreciate how love changes everything.
