By Caryl Churchill

Directed by Mike Steele 

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 100 characters try to make sense of what they know.

Contains adult themes, discussions of sex/sexuality, discussions of mental illness and a reference to torture. 

Runtime is approximately two hours and ten minutes including one 15 minute intermission.

View the Love and Information playbill.
