Theater Lovers Will Adore This Live Performance of “I and You”
A teenage boy comes over to a teenage girl’s house to go over a homework assignment: Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass poetry. She has a debilitating and chronic illness and cannot attend school.
Playwright Lauren Gunderson, who has made a habit of regional premieres to get her works before the audience, has introduced a twist that adds a sense of mystery and makes the pair's work to get along all the more crucial.
"Two very different people realize they need each other in order to survive and achieve happiness," Gordon says.
Poetry is quoted left and right, but don't let any hesitation about that stop you, Gordon says. “I think it will appeal to anybody. Young people because they will see themselves up there. Poetry lovers. Anyone who appreciates humanity.”
