March 2nd and 3rd, 2018 | 7:30 PM – 9:00 PM | Memorial Hall, Pickard Theater
Love and Information, a fast-moving kaleidoscope of intimate whispers, philosophical exchanges, and life-changing revelations, is Memorial Hall Award-winning playwright Caryl Churchill’s meditation on relationships in digital culture. Mirroring today’s miniscule attention spans, the play features more than 100 characters in 57 vignettes to explore how we process knowledge and each other. Some are just a few lines of fragmented dialogue, others are a few pages – age, gender, race, class, and sexual orientation aren’t specified, so the identity of the speaker and the nature of the situations must be surmised from the language – but buffeted as they are by screen communication and more news, gossip, an trivia than they can digest, all are somehow our stand-ins.
Directed by Professor of Theater and Dance Sarah Bay Chen, this production features media designed in collaboration with students in Media Arts and Digital and Computational Studies.
Advance Tickets are free and available at Smith Union. Tickets will also be available at the door.
