For our 32nd Meetup, WWSF attended the latest play by visionary Caryl Churchill, Love and Information which is the inaugural production at The Strand Theater, ACT’s new second stage space. Many Meetups ago (our 4th!) we attended Custom Made Theater’s production of Top Girls directed by Laura Lundy-Paine. You can check out the post about that Meetup here.
Love and Information looks at the interplay between the virtual and the real in a fragmented structure of unrelated short scenes. As our attention spans grow ever shorter, and more and more screens dominate our daily lives, Churchill argues for the importance of human connection.
Women artists involved in the production include Casey Stangl (director) , Cindy Goldfield, Christina Liang, Sharon Lockwood, Dominque Salerno, and Mia Tagano (AEA actors).
Theater Critic Jim Gladstone writes, “This is a production as interactive and engrossing as the most immersive multi-player video game. But the world it engages you with is not the stuff of fantasy. It’s reality. It’s something that shouldn’t be missed.”
The show runs Tuesdays through Sundays until August 9th. Get tickets here.
