LOVE AND INFORMATION
by Caryl Churchill
A child cannot feel pain. A man has a secret. A woman wants an affair. A scientist dissects a brain. Someone tells the police. Another puts an elephant on the stairs.
In a series of tantalising vignettes, over 100 vibrant characters search for meaning in their lives. Through sex, death, feeling, thinking, taxidermy and karaoke they discover each other. Within their intimate whispers, philosophical exchanges and life-changing revelations, we see ourselves and the people we love.
Caryl Churchill is one of the world’s foremost living playwrights. Since the 1950s, she has maintained inventiveness and a currency that remain unmatched.
Our Wharf 1 Theatre has played host to Churchill’s work several times – from Serious Money and Top Girls to Far Away and Seven Jewish Children.
In Love and Information, her signature wit and profound intuition reveal a kaleidoscope of human connections.
Guided by STC Resident Director Kip Williams, the gifted cast, including Marco Chiappi, Glenn Hazeldine, Anita Hegh, Zahra Newman, Anthony Taufa and Ursula Yovich, Alison Whyte, use their chameleonic talents to explore this unique and evocative snapshot of our modern era.
'It's intellectually and emotionally probing theatre that feels utterly fresh.' ★★★★ The Age
