face blurred to be many faces

Love and Information

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.


Mike Steele is a director, performer and writer from Chicago, Illinois. Most recently he directed poolboy00 and OCD for UTNT (UT New Theatre) (2020/2021). Other directing credits include The Killer and Sad Happy Sucker (Trap Door Theatre) and The Capillaries (Links Hall). Steele is also the former founding artistic director of The Island Theatre of Chicago. With The Island he led the creation of several original plays including Tourist Trap and The Glass Inward. Recently, Steele has been developing an immersive performance piece titled High Strangeness dealing with belief, aliens, spirituality, mischief and fakery. Also an actor, Steele has performed with numerous companies and toured internationally in cities across Poland, Romania, Hungary and the Republic of Moldova. Steele holds a B.F.A. in Theatre Studies from the Meadows School of the Arts.
