The Winter Play: love and information
By Caryl Churchill
Directed by Michelle Talgarow
"-It doesn't hurt to know it. Information and also love.
-If you're lucky."
In these Pandemic days, much of our connection is on a screen. It's a constant overload of overwhelming information. Caryl Churchill's love and information shows a broad spectrum of human moments. Connection. Reminders of what we take for granted in human exchange. Snippets that tell life stories. Before Pandemic, I took for granted the live, eye-to-eye, body-to-body, breath-to-breath interaction of daily life. Now, I crave it.
This play gives a partial glimpse of the light at the end of this revolutionary tunnel. Here's to the moment when we can all hug again; share a meal, and chat with mutual understanding about the days when we couldn't.
