Love and Information takes place in the past, present, and future. It examines how we communicate and create relationships through time, space and technology. The play explores the ways in which our attachment to technology has both isolated us and also elevated our voices to amplify movements and our expression of identity. Churchill’s work is always pushing for us to confront issues of classism, political hierarchies and gender inequalities. In Love and Information, she takes all of these themes and creates a world where her characters, and in turn the audience, must find ways to connect to other; even when we can’t find common ground; even when we don’t have words; even when it feels impossible.
This is an ensemble driven piece for an ensemble of actors of any age, ability, race, ethnicity or gender expression.
“One of the many points made by this exhilarating theatrical kaleidoscope is that we live in a world where information bombardment is in danger of leading to atrophy of memory, erosion of privacy and decay of feeling.” – Guardian
“Caryl Churchill’s play Love and Information is a poignant exploration of how a pathological desire for information — ranging from family secrets and dream interpretation to lab experiments and the census — shapes human connection.” – Chicago Magazine
