by Caryl Churchill


Directed by Katie Henderson and Assistant Director Adrian Garcia Velásquez



Someone sneezes. Someone can’t get a signal. Someone won’t answer the door. Someone put an elephant on the stairs. Someone’s not ready to talk. Someone is her brother’s mother. Someone hates irrational numbers. Someone told the police. Someone got a message from the traffic light. Someone’s never felt like this before. In this fast moving kaleidoscope, more than a hundred characters try to make sense of what they know.



“Sometimes playwright John Cariani looks at the world—actually the worlds—of love and relationships through rose-colored glasses. Just as often he views those worlds through lenses tinted a middling-to-dark-gray or maybe a jaundiced yellow…While poking fun at the happily-ever-after notion by means of a strong dose of happily-never-after, Cariani shoots his cockeyed valentines with a quiver full of funny lines. He knows how to keep audiences laughing while passing along disappointing news.” —Huffington Post

“…Whimsical romantic comedy. In the nine vignettes that make up [the] play, couples meet [or] break apart or learn to love each other more…the jokes here are easygoing and snark-free.” —NY Times

"...How different a person would you be if there was just a slight change in what you thought was real? It’s a question that only becomes more pressing as artificial intelligence advances and opaque algorithms dominate how we perceive the world and communicate with others. In 2012, British titan of the theatre Caryl Churchill examined that theme in a vast but succinct series of vignettes called Love and Information.” —Around the Town Chicago

“A thought-churning, deeply poignant new play.“ —The New York Times

“…turns a play that’s intellectually interesting but potentially tedious into a funny, vivacious, and often tender cornucopia of human experience." —Slant

“…it’s the brilliant specificity of Churchill’s observations and the clarity of her writing that linger long after the performance is over." —Toronto Star
