Love Letters Straight from Your Heart

Critics' choice
This astonishing performance piece from Bristol-based company Uninvited Guests returns to London for a second Valentine's Day-straddling stint at the Southbank. What actually happens – or at least, how incredibly effective it is – is hard to describe, but in essence the two performers sequence and stylize a series of anonymous dedications to loved ones – the living, the dead, the missed - into a sort of emotional mixtape that inevitably reduces the audience to a quivering mess.
