Love and Information
by Caryl Churchill
Directed by Benjamin T. Ismail
January 27 – February 28, 2016
Someone sneezes. Someone can’t get a signal. Someone won’t answer the door. Someone put an elephant on the stairs. Someone’s not ready to talk. Someone is her brother’s mother. Someone hates irrational numbers. Someone told the police. Someone got a message from the traffic light. Someone’s never felt like this before. In this fast moving kaleidoscope, more than a hundred characters try to make sense of what they know. From award-winning playwright Caryl Churchill comes an acclaimed new play that takes a close look at the Information Age and how its data inspired obsessions, FaceTime conversations, and celebrity selfies threaten to replace human contact.
“Exhilarating! Dizzying . . . thought-churning, deeply poignant. Leave it to Ms. Churchill to come up with a work that so ingeniously and exhaustively mirrors our age of the splintered attention span.” – New York Times
