Things We Do for Love stages the goings-on of three levels of the same building simultaneously. Nikki and her fiancé, Hamish, move into the upstairs flat of her best-friend Barbara’s place. Hamish and Barbara’s immediate hostility to each other masks deeper feelings. Meanwhile, in the basement the lodger, Gilbert, is making a shrine of his own hidden love.

Things We Do for Love was first performed at the Stephen Joseph Theatre, Scarborough, in April 1997.
