Love and Information” is a play of many moments — fragments — of peoples’ lives as they pursue the desire for love and the subsequent need for information often connected to that love.  

In a series of seven segments of seven scenes, plus more than a score of random moments, we see characters searching to make sense of the world and their place in it. They struggle with what they know, what they wish they knew, what they don’t know and what they wish they didn’t know.  

“Love and Information” takes the audience on a nonlinear journey of the fears, hopes and desires we experience as we go about our daily lives in this crazy world. 

“Love and Information” is directed by Associate Professor Grechen Lynne Wingerter and stage managed by Katie Campbell DollarEthan Turbyfill is assistant director while Savannah Avignone, Christian Perryman and Lindsey Strange are assistant stage managers.
