Arts Garage has dedicated its season to celebrating women’s voices, and Lauren ’s is surely one to be heard. The playwright’s latest stage production, I & You, is Winner of the 2014 Steinberg/ATCA New Play Award Winner and finalist for the Susan Smith Blackburn Playwrighting Prize.
The production is a sharp and funny drama about two very opposite high school students who unite through a school project on a Walt Whitman poem. They unlock the deep wisdom of Whitman while getting closer to the mystery of their convergent lives. I & YOU is a valentine to youth, life, love, and the strange beauty of human connections.
Directed by Louis Tyrrell – Artistic Director, Theatre at Arts Garage
