In Merrimack Repertory Theatre's production of Lauren Gunderson's I and You, loner Caroline is sick and hasn't been to school in weeks. Then her classmate Anthony suddenly shows up at her door with a beat-up copy of Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass and an urgent partner assignment from their high school Lit teacher. As these two let down their guards and share their secrets, the poetry assignment uncovers deep bonds between them. Winner of the American Theatre Critics Association New Play Award, I and You is a funny and powerful new play about youth, life, love and the strange transcendent connections among us all.
This stunning play by Lauren Gunderson won the prestigious Steinberg/ATCA Award for best new play produced outside of New York.
Running time is 80 minutes, with no intermission.
