Cherished Disappointments in Love is a brilliantly funny and wildly savage theatrical roller-coaster ride. A woman of a certain age is in love with Finland's youngest philosopher, Pekka Himanen. He is also loved by an army sergeant major who means to make a man of him. From the country who gave us saunas, Nokia and Mika Hakkinen, Cherished Disappointments in Love is a comic fantasia on love, philosophy and theatre. Shot through with an eroticism that engenders chaos, the time-honoured and eternal differences between male and female are played out upon the stage with wild, highly comic intensity.
