HOW DO WE MAINTAIN OUR REAL LIVES IN THE INTERNET AGE?
Make it a Caryl Churchill weekend and check out LOVE AND INFORMATION at Bryn Mawr and MAD FOREST at Swarthmore!
The Theater Program of Bryn Mawr and Haverford Colleges (Mark Lord, Chair) presents Love and Information, directed by Catharine Slusar, a Barrymore Award-winning Philadelphia actor and director and a faculty member in the Bryn Mawr College Theater Program. Love and Information is Caryl Churchill’s newest play, was first produced in London at the Royal Court Theatre in 2012, and is heralded by The Guardian as the “play that everyone should see.” Love and Information explores what happens to our brains, our personal connections and our privacy as we are besieged with information. We are, minute-by-minute, hour-by-hour, bombarded with information from computers, phones, and texts. How do we keep our minds active, our feelings alive and our privacy intact while navigating the information superhighway? Caryl Churchill’s play asks us to question the role of technology in our lives by presenting over 50 scenes exploring these concepts of rapidly eroding privacy and memory, and our desperate thirst for knowledge (and cat videos).
Love and Information opens the Theater Programs 2014-2015 season, with six performances (November 14-16 and 20-22) at the Hepburn Teaching Theater (Goodhart Hall, Bryn Mawr College). Opening night is Friday, November 14.
