Caryl Churchill creates a kaleidoscope of 57 micro-plays, featuring over 100 characters exploring the breadth of human experience and our shared hunger for connection in an increasingly digitized and disconnected world. Quantum Theatre makes it local. It’s performed by seven couples of cohabitating actors, whom you are likely to know.
The production is offered in live 30-minute segments presented over four nights, broadcast from their homes each evening at 8:30 PM. Live broadcasts will be preceded by a recording of the previous night’s performances.
Love and Information was first presented by The English Stage Company at The Royal Court Theatre in the Jerwood Theatre Downstairs, London, England on 6 September 2012. The US premier was presented at New York Theatre Workshop, New York on 19 February 2014, directed by James McDonald.
A statement from The English Stage Company:
Love and information are two things we desperately need. We were pleased to offer this play exploring connection during a time of isolation and questions about how we receive and process information. But we find ourselves presenting it not only in the midst of a global pandemic but alongside widespread response to longstanding, systemic racism. To be silent is to be complicit. We, the company of Love and Information, stand against injustice. Black Lives Matter.
Please join us in donating to the Bukit Bail Fund. The Bukit Bail Fund is Pittsburgh’s first community bail fund that prioritizes those most affected by unjust pretrial detention. And please continue to learn and share information about how we as people, as a city, and as a nation can do better.
