    Love and Information 

    by CARYL CHURCHILL

    directed by MICHAEL DOVE

     

    September 28 thru October 21, 2017

     

     

    Love and Information is a fast moving kaleidoscope of over 60 moments of intimate whispers, philosophical exchanges, and life-changing revelations by more than a hundred characters trying to make sense of what they know. Someone sneezes. Someone can’t get a signal. Someone shares a secret. 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.
