Someone sneezes. Someone can’t get a signal. Someone won’t answer the door. Someone’s not ready to talk. Someone told the police. Someone got a message from the traffic light. Someone’s never felt like this before. In Caryl Churchill's fast-moving kaleidoscope of a play, more than a hundred characters, played by ten LSU Theatre actors, try to make sense of what they know. Churchill takes a close look at the Information Age and how stories told through its data-inspired obsessions, FaceTime conversations, and celebrity selfies threaten to replace human contact. A series of short vignettes directed by Tara Ahmadinejad, Love & Information gleams with relevance to today’s society and the ways in which we communicate in life and love. February 8—19 at the Claude L. Shaver Theater on the LSU campus; weeknights and Saturday at 7:30 pm, 2:30 pm Sunday. $12–$20, with a pay-what-you-can performance on February 8.
