UNI Calendar of Events

Performing Arts, Music and Theatre

Sunday, November 9, 2014 - 2:00 pm
By: Caryl Churchill

In partnership with UNI’s Cornerstone course we present Love & Information, by award winning playwright Caryl Churchill. The Cornerstone theme for the year is Media & Social Media; we explore how our interactions have been abraded by our media-rich lives. Love & Information presents a blizzard of fragments snatched from our personal relationships as mediated and negotiated by the different ways messages travel through our everyday lives. It’s all about individuals trying to connect with and understand one another — ultimately in vain perhaps, but that’s just what makes such daily struggles heroic.  

"[A] thought-churning, deeply poignant new play...Leave it to Ms. Churchill to come up with a work that so ingeniously and exhaustively mirrors our age of the splintered attention span. - New York Times 

"...one of the many points made by this exhilarating theatrical kaleidoscope is that we live in a world where information bombardment is in danger of leading to atrophy of memory, erosion of privacy and decay of feeling." - The Guardian

In this hilarious musical tale, Buddy, an orphan who ended up at the North Pole to be raised by elves, realizes he’s actually human - his enormous (human) size and inability to make toys are dead giveaways. He heads to New York City to find his birth father, discover his true identity and bring the true meaning of Christmas back to the city. Based on the now classic 2003 film, this musical is happy enough for kids and plenty smart for adults – truly a show for the entire family!
