Love and Information is a fast moving kaleidoscope of nearly 60 moments of intimate whispers, philosophical exchanges, and life-changing revelations by more than 100 characters trying to make sense of what they know. Each of this work’s self-contained segments, some of which are only seconds long, deals with the ways we lust for, process, and reject knowledge in the age of technology. At the same time, it teases, thwarts, and gluts its audience’s capacity to assimilate the forms of information it considers.

With this production we invite you to analyze the many ways that we communicate (or don’t communicate) in 2019 and projecting our hopes for the future. A world where people can present themselves without having to conform to false constructs of the gender binary. The play asks us to consider how meaning is constructed, who creates the meaning and to participate in the process.
Love and Information is presented by special arrangement with SAMUEL FRENCH, INC.
Tickets for Gallery Productions are available in the Theatre lobby one hour before showtime. Tickets are free for University of Iowa students (with a valid ID) and $5 for general admission.
