    Hungry For Love is a sitcom for the stage, featuring six characters who become friends (and more) through the course of 90 minutes. Outgoing Garda Martin moves into a flat with Kath and her sister seemingly intent on having the best of times, while downstairs Kath’s student brother broods over his failure to score academically or emotionally. Meanwhile Kath’s new friend may be more than she seems, while Kath’s sister’s boyfriend may be less than he seems.
