University Players Presents Love And Information | A Modern Comedy Drama
March 27, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - March 31, 2019 @ 4:00 pm
University Players (UP Windsor) presents the modern comedy drama, Love And Information, at Essex Hall Theatre on March 22, 23, 24, 27, 28, 29, 30, & 31, 2019.
One of this season’s most intriguing offerings. The play is a series of vignettes, variations on themes of love and information. Only 16 actors will perform over a hundred different characters and 57 scenes as they weave a tapestry of colourful, funny and touching moments.
“Love and Information is a play with an extremely loose structure. The structure is there, but within it, there are so many possibilities. Churchill has provided specific text but without any context. There is very little punctuation and even gender has not been assigned to characters. It’s like being given some specific paint colours and brushes and a huge empty blank canvas. You can fill the canvas however you wish, but you must use the materials provided. It’s going to be fun to see what we come up with together when all of our creative forces come together.” – Marc Bondy, director
Written by Caryl Churchill
Directed by Marc Bondy
Evening performances from Wednesday to Saturday start at 8 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday matinee performances are at 2 p.m.
Essex Hall Theatre is located on the University of Windsor campus on the corner of Wyandotte and Patricia.
“…compels us to think about the paradoxical variety and similarity in the ways we try to make sense of our universe and our place in it.” – New York Times
