The Sacramento Premiere of LOVE AND INFORMATION will be the main-stage directorial debut of local theatre talent, Benjamin T. Ismail.

In this Brave New World of Technology and The Information Age, Capital Stage explore's Churchill's reflections on our modern society. LOVE AND INFORMATION will run from January 27 through February 28, 2016 with a Press Opening on Saturday, January 30 at 8pm. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the cast in action below!
Someone sneezes. Someone can't get a signal. Someone won't answer the door. Someone put an elephant on the stairs. Someone's not ready to talk. Someone is her brother's mother. Someone hates irrational numbers. Someone told the police. Someone got a message from the traffic light. Someone's never felt like this before. In this fast-moving kaleidoscope, more than a hundred characters try to make sense of what they know. From award-winning playwright Caryl Churchill comes an acclaimed new play that takes a close look at the Information Age and how its data inspired obsessions, FaceTime conversations, and celebrity selfies threaten to replace human contact.
