Leave it to Ms. Churchill to come up with a work that so ingeniously and exhaustively mirrors our age of the splintered attention span.
Ben Brantley, The New York Times
This "thought-churning, deeply poignant" play (The New York Times) proves that practise can make perfect, as it marks British playwright Caryl Churchill's seventh premiere in the USA. Described as a 'theatrical kaleidoscope', Love and Information is a fragmented yet completely meaningful experience of its characters trying to make sense of what they know.
Confused? Bear in mind that Ms. Churchill's plays often extend beyond the boundaries of traditional drama, infused instead with razor-sharp wit and a persistent but subtle commentary on aspects of modern life. In short, she enjoys playing intellectual games with her audience.
In Love and Information, linear narrative is replaced with around 50 scenes acted in succession by a cast of 15 (including some especially talented child actors) who playing 100 different characters. These scenes, some only 25 seconds long, combine to form a mosaic of modern consciousness - the thoughts and fears that pervade our every day existence and the human need to connect.
Love and Information premiered in the Royal Court Theatre in London in 2012. This American premiere is once again directed by James Macdonald, with the ingenius white 'Rubrik's cube' set design (which makes Ms. Churchill's play as much as the actors themselves) by Miriam Buether.
