LOVE BOMB is a play about a mother’s (Lillian) passionate quest to unlock the mystery of her daughter’s (Nichola) disappearance and the young singer songwriter (Justine) she hopes will provide the key. As the play opens Lillian seeks Justine out at a small bar as she prepares for a concert that evening. Lillian has heard Justine’s recent viral You-Tube hit “Missing the Point” and she thinks the lyrics seem exactly like Nicola’s poetry. She poses as a fan to crash the rehearsal and she what she can learn before admitting her agenda is to find her daughter. As the play unfolds it is revealed that Justine’s “original” songs were composed using poetry written by Lillian’s daughter in her diary and finally we learn Niciola and Justine were both victims of the same sex-trafficker.
