Raw, funny, intense, realistic and well done overall. As you leave the theater after the play, you are reminded that such people (the characters in the play) exist everywhere.

Great acting is forgetting you're at a playhouse and not just sitting in a quiet place with a friend who is hurting. The storylines were deep, real, gripping, and human. We have all been there.

The writer won't be winning any Emmys for this. Or anything else. Good idea, but the show is just kinda ugly, everyone is either messed up or a lowlife or both. Left the theatre mildly depressed, and this is supposed to be a comedy.

Quotes & Highlights

“Director Kerr Seth Lordygan elicits excellent and beautifully nuanced performances from the entire cast. The renditions of these roles were all so credible, it was tempting to believe they were not acting. No Love is worth seeing.” -ArtsBeatLA
“Two particularly strong performances are by Marmion as a bewildered Army reservist, and by Michelle Danyn as his platonic, childhood friend, so arrogantly glib when they meet years later. She admonishes him dismissively, despite his obvious yearning and heartbreak, that his childhood intransigence toward her squandered all opportunity, even now, for anything more than a friendship. Yet on her seemingly firm resolve, the tables too will turn. True to the spirit of this comedy, in a heartless world, tables keep turning, and destiny keeps lashing out against everyone.” -LA Weekly
_"_The Eclectic always delivers top-notch acting, and this show is no exception, from Lili Stephens-Henry’s ingenue NYC waitress all the way through to Michelle Danyn as the callous friend-without-benefits tormentor of her lifelong guy pal (Daniel Marmion). Eclectic company president Kerr Seth Lordygan skillfully paces the whirlwind array of events and characters that parade before us over the course of No Love_’s 80 or so minutes … Osborne clearly relishes dipping into the bag of classic shock value tools (rape, incest, bondage, mistaken sexual identities and misfired bodily fluids, guns, blood) and playing around with them for theatrical effect, while just managing to avoid pushing everything over the top." —"_LAist":http://laist.com/2012/09/06/noloveeclectic.php
“From this very talented writer (who, ironically, is now happily married), comes his youthful stories of very unrequited love, stories that will resonate and exemplify many of the news headlines we see each day. Art is a reflection of true life.”  —Examiner.com
“The play is somewhat bizarre, but sharp. It’s dark, but funny. It’s serious and intense and then weird and avant-garde. This is not for the sensitive of mind or subject but definitely a play for the intensity and theme of love in all the grey shades you could think of and some you couldn’t.” —"nohoartsdistrict.com ":http://www.nohoartsdistrict.com/index.php/theatre-guide/theatre-reviews/item/1396-theatre-review%E2%80%94no-love
