Love Goes to Press
By Martha Gellhorn and Virginia Cowles

November 7, 8, 9*, 13**, 14, 15, 16*, 20**, 21, 22, 2014

Written in the aftermath of World War II, Love Goes to Press opened in London in 1946 and on Broadway in 1947. Written as a relief for the survivors of Blitzkrieg and ration cards, today it is a devilishly entertaining portrayal of the Battle of the Sexes. In this wise-cracking romantic comedy, set in a press camp on the Italian front in 1944, two women war correspondents - smart, sexy, and famous for scooping their male competitors - struggle to balance their professional lives with their love lives. The two glamorous American journalists are autobiographical creations of the authors: Martha Gellhorn and Virginia Cowles who met while covering the Spanish Civil War.
