production information

"This is a story about a boy and a girl…or a girl and a boy, depending on how you look at it."

Loki and Cassie live in an ordinary town. Populated by average people. But they are anything but normal.

When they first meet across the dining-hall sparks begin to fly, starting a fire which threatens to engulf the whole school.

An explosive new play written by Luke Barnes for the Almeida Young Company with music by Grace Savage, Loki and Cassie: A Love Story, takes an unflinching look at masculinity, teenage relationships and the darkest corners of modern society. 

The Almeida Young Company is a year round ensemble which aims to create the theatre artists of the future. Each year we bring together young theatre makers to create vibrant work inspired by big ideas.
