Love and Information

A Lorem Ipsum Production of Caryl Churchill

Lorem Ipsum will be staging two Caryl Churchill plays from Janruary 15th-25th.  Productions of Owners and Love and Information will alternate with Owners being staged on 15th, 17th, 18th, 23rd with an additional matinee on Sunday the 25th at 2:00.  Love and Information on the 16th, 18th (matinee), 22nd, 24th, and the 25th.  

Love and Information features 100 characters and is performed by a cast of 11.  The production is structured as a series of more than 50 fragmented scenes, some no longer than 25 seconds, all of which are apparently unrelated but which accumulate into a startling mosaic, a portrayal of modern consciousness and the need for human intimacy, love and connection.  In and interview director Nick Schroeder said "Love and Information puts the lens very very close, so the play is almost flipped inside out. There are about 65 scenes linked by an emotional thread rather than a narrative one. They don’t necessarily tell a complete story, but they frame certain obstacles that come between people who supposedly love or trust each other, or think they do."
