Love and Information / are profoundly human needs. But do we know too much?

In her latest hit, Caryl Churchill – arguably the world’s foremost living playwright – has created an ingeniously recognisable portrait of the modern era. With the inventiveness and currency of her signature works Top Girls and Cloud Nine, this unique new play offers glimpses into the lives of over a hundred characters.

Through a series of tantalising vignettes, eight chameleonic actors will embody more than 100 characters – a child who cannot feel pain, a man in love with a computer voice, a woman with a secret. Like a single beam of light refracted, each scene exposes a different facet of human nature.

A quick-fire play, Churchill’s Love and Information is an exhilarating experience, creating a theatrical kaleidoscope that shrewdly / questions how connected we truly are in this ever-connected age.

intellectually and emotionally probing theatre that feels utterly fresh
