9781848422889: Love and Information

From esteemed British playwright Caryl Churchill - a fast moving kaleidoscope - in which more than a hundred characters try to make sense of what they know. Someone sneezes. Someone can't get a signal. Someone shares a secret. Someone won't answer the door. Someone put an elephant on the stairs. Someone's not ready to talk. Someone is her brother's mother. Someone hates irrational numbers. Someone told the police. Someone got a message from the traffic light. Someone's never felt like this before.

About the Author:

Caryl Churchill is a leading dramatist whose many plays include Light Shining in Buckinghamshire, Top Girls, Cloud Nine, Far Away and A Number.

Review:


FIVE STARS: “Caryl Churchill’s astonishing new piece, Love and Information, is a blast of 58 playlets. Each is very short, witty and poignant, a tiny, detailed snapshot of two people talking and exploring the relationship between facts and feelings. In every playlet – some no more than fragmentary exchanges of sentences – a piece of information is dropped, like a stone into a pond, leaving the ripples to be imagined by the audience.” – Georgina Brown, Mail on Sunday

"[A] thought-churning, deeply poignant new play... Leave it to Ms. Churchill to come up with a work that so ingeniously and exhaustively mirrors our age of the splintered attention span... This British playwright has proved herself without peer in creating expressly topical works in which form and function are one.... Sharp-minded [and] tender-hearted." - Ben Brantley, New York Times

FOUR STARS: “The wit, invention and structural ingenuity of Churchill’s work are remarkable. She never does anything twice.” – Charles Spencer, Daily Telegraph

“Britain’s most innovative dramatist” – David Benedict, Variety

Five Stars: “In the fast-moving traffic of life there are still quiet moments of beauty, heart-wrenching sorrow, joy and profound epiphanies... The succinct and thought-provoking script speaks volumes about the fast turnover of modern life.” – Matthew Tucker, Huffington Post
