Tribune-Review – Quantum Theatre will host four evenings of live online programming, featuring seven Pittsburgh-area actor couples who cohabit in real life.

The text will come from Caryl Churchill’s “Love and Information,” a collection of 57 micro-plays, featuring more than 100 characters “exploring the breadth of human experience and our shared hunger for connection in an increasingly digitized and disconnected world,” according to Quantum.

The production will be offered in live 30-minute installments on Facebook, beginning at 8:30 p.m. Thursday. On succeeding nights, the live broadcast will be preceded by a recording of the previous night’s performances.

The schedule includes:

• Thursday – Part 1 presented as a live broadcast at 8:30 p.m.

• Friday – Recording of Part 1 presented at approximately 8 p.m., live broadcast of Part 2 at 8:30 p.m.

• Saturday – Recordings of Parts 1 and 2 presented at approximately 7:30 p.m., live broadcast of Part 3 at 8:30 p.m.

• Sunday – Recordings of Parts 1 and 2 presented at approximately 7:30 p.m., encore live broadcast of Part 3 at 8:30 p.m.

Featured actor couples include Julianne Avolio and John Michnya, Mindy Cooper and Parag S. Gohel, Daina Griffith and Daniel Krell, Nancy McNulty and Tim McGeever, Connor McCanlus and John Feightner, Marva Parker and Rico Romalus Parker and Lisa Velten Smith and Andrew William Smith.

Donations will be accepted to support the presentations.
