The Mysterious Mr Love is an ‘Edwardian psychological thriller offering an edge of romance, plenty of conniving, a dose of comedy and sharp suspense’ (Curtain Up).

When jaded con-man George Love encounters naïve, middle-aged and ever-hopeful Adelaide, a working-class milliner who purposely works in the back room so as not to trouble the customers with her plain looks, he plays on her desperate longing for a new life in order to follow through on his plans to marry her, take her nest egg and dump her as per his modus operandi

But once together in their cheap honeymoon lodgings by the sea, his plans begin to unravel in bizarre and unpredictable ways.
