DETAILS

Love and Information Caryl Churchill

REX THEATRE- STAGE "KATINA PAXINOU"

The multi-award-winning playwright Caryl Churchill is one of the most important names in post-war British theatre.  Her diverse body of work, which eschews the conventions of realistic drama, is essentially a critique of the values of modern society, abuse of power, and the position of women in a world ruled by men.  A key representative of the 1950s new wave, Churchill is widely regarded as a great dissenter, both of the traditional dramatic landscape and of the established language of the stage.  Every one of her plays employs a different form and genre, opening up new avenues for theatrical expression.

Love and Information examines issues such as the handling of knowledge and technology, the development of communication, and our ability to love.  In an age in which the deluge of information and access to knowledge occur at frightening speed, and in which technology keeps us constantly connected with other people, the need for information overload has overshadowed the need for deeper, more meaningful relationships.

Dozens of fragmented scenes depict a world in which we are torn between the thirst for information and the thirst for love.  Teeming with information, people and situations, it is a vast landscape in which every instant shines a light into a dark corner, an enormous stained-glass window highlighting the magic of the moment, and the love and mortality of human existence.  This is the world of now, of the pointless but also of the essential, of haste, traffic, chit-chat, aimless wandering on social networks, love, the difficulty of saying "I love you", jealousy and pain.
