Theatre

Love and Information by Caryl Churchill
April 16, 17, 18
This performance will be available during these three days only and requires a free ticket to enjoy.

Featuring a cast of 15 actors playing over 100 different characters, "Love and Information" by Caryl Churchill is a play of many moments — fragments — of peoples’ lives as they pursue the desire for love and the subsequent need for information often connected to that love

In a series of seven segments of seven scenes, plus more than a score of random moments, we see characters searching to make sense of the world and their place in it. They struggle with what they know, what they wished they knew, what they don’t know and what they wished they didn’t know. 

"Love and Information" takes us on a nonlinear journey of the fears, hopes and desires we all experience as we go about our daily lives in this crazy world.
