Former Eastenders star Chucky Venn will produce and star in a new web drama titled ‘The Method of Love’.
On the surface, Chris Nduka is the picture perfect man; charming and attractive. Women are enamoured and captivated by him, but with his obsessive desire and preference for sex over love, committing to just one woman is as remote to him as taking a sabbatical to Tibet to be an understudy of the Dalai Lama.
In direct contrast, his newly wed brother Niko’s enthusiastic show of love and romance is at best nauseating and borderline uncomfortable to witness as he gushes over wife April in a fashion that suggests he is truly the first man on earth to experience such euphemism. But behind each brother’s expression of love and affection, lies their troubled and dark childhood that has rendered one brother obsessively in love with the idea of love, and the other incapable of showing love or forming a healthy relationship.
Using London’s buzzing streets as a backdrop, we witness the hazardous journey of self-discovery in the quest to find true love through the lives of the shows central characters. The ambitious and confident, Chloe in a long-term relationship with Anthony, a successful video producer, struggles with recently developed feelings for another man, which are both alarming and worrying as they raise questions about where her life with Anthony is heading.
Frankie, the overly confident, witty ladies man and Chris’ best friend, who on the surface wears the exterior of a sexist egotistical male, happy to brag about female conquests, but beneath, hides a deeper secret of insecurity and desperateness for acceptance that threatens to not only offer him a lifetime of misery but can have a detrimental effect on his friendship with Chris.
Finally, we have the mysterious Charlotte, a widow who is still deeply grieving over the death of her husband 2 years ago. She is struggling to find someone to live up to the impossible image her grief has created of her lost love whilst in the meantime relying on less than perfect means to cope with each day.
The Method of Love is a clever critique of the human condition, allowing us to navigate through the characters innermost fears, passions and revelations as each element of their lives continually forces them to question the very essence of love.
The ‘Method of Love’ coming soon…
