An immigrant’s tale of beginnings, endings and Britishness set against the music of Nat King Cole.

When West Indian pensioner Alfred Morris is kicked out of his daughter’s Croydon house he returns to his Willesden home to find he’s been gifted a ‘Polish cleaner/home help’. Eager to learn the ways of her new land, the cantankerous and xenophobic Alfred realises that he may indeed still have a role in life: he could teach Maria to be British – and if he succeeds, maybe she might help him in the most unexpected way!

Helen Goddard's winning design for the 2007 Linbury Prize for Stage Design led to this commission for Let There Be Love.
