Rising North East star Me Lost Me to perform live music for Live Theatre’s final 50th anniversary show Three Acts of Love

North East musician Jayne Dent, aka Me Lost Me, will score and play live onstage throughout Live Theatre’s upcoming production of Three Acts of Love, running from Thursday 30 November to Saturday 16 December 2023. Following a national tour supporting Richard Dawson, Dent has just released her album RPG through record label Upset The Rhythm to major acclaim, with Jude Rogers at the Guardian describing it as an “exciting and imaginative album exploring the links between traditional influences and electronics in fertile ways.“ 

Penned by three female playwrights Laura LindowNaomi Obeng and Vici Wreford-Sinnott, and co-directed by Bex Bowsher and Jack McNamaraThree Acts of Love will be the final production of a bumper 50th year that has seen the likes of Sting, Toby Jones, Julie Hesmondhalgh and Stewart Lee all make their way to the Quayside venue. 

Three Acts of Love is a three part journey through the city of Newcastle exploring how love finds its way into the fabric of our society, from our closing social clubs to our social media spaces. A major musical innovator, Jayne Dent uses a large collection of instruments and electronics to create an endless palette of extraordinary and evocative sounds. She will join a cast of three who will move in and out of drama and song in a rich evening 

Artistic Director Jack McNamara said:   
“Watching Jayne play is completely captivating. Musically she is capable of just about anything. Having her as part of this ambitious and deeply political work onstage will be a joy to behold. In a sense Jayne becomes the voice of the city, threading together these incredible narratives by some of the most exciting new writers I have come across.” 

Jayne Dent said: 
"I'm thrilled to be composing and performing the music for Three Acts of Love at Live Theatre. My music often finds inspiration in texts, and when I read the pieces I was immediately struck by how evocative they were; I couldn't wait to start working with the material and diving deeper into these worlds. It's a joy to be involved in the telling of these stories and I can't wait to weave some musical threads between them."
