Love and Information features 57 short, hilarious, and poignant vignettes with over 100 unnamed characters trying to communicate with each other in today’s world of shortened attention spans and vast societal sharing. Spouses, friends, siblings, and colleagues are dramatized in the middle of conversations as they deal with endless streams of data that can possibly alter relationships. They interrupt. They finish each other’s thoughts. They think they have finished each other’s thoughts. With so much sharing, when does TMI really become TMI? How do we love in a world with so much information?

Written in 2012, Love and Information distills the societal forces shaping our lives, a mirroring of our contemporary, minuscule attention spans. Considered one of Great Britain’s greatest living playwrights, Caryl Churchill is well known for her provocative and relevant plays that are remarkably varied in both structure and topic. Her best-known works, Cloud Nine, Top Girls, Serious Money, Far Away, and A Number, combine a darkly funny imagination with a strong political viewpoint. Join us for this “sharp-minded, tenderhearted play’s embrace of an ultimately random universe.” (The New York Times.)
