I really enjoyed this show. I thought the reflections on what love is -- does it reside in language, physicality, something else -- were very interesting, I thought the relationship between the sisters was well drawn and the acting was great.

A Chicago Premiere</p> <p>One of the hottest new plays among regional theaters devoted to new work, Love Person is an intellectually intriguing love story about language as a portal and a barrier to human connection. Can love transcend sexual orientation, physical attraction, and social structure, and rely instead on the ways in which people communicate? Two couples, three cultures, and four languages blossom, break, sustain, repair, and flourish in this language laden love mystery, performed in American Sign Language, Sanskrit, English, and projected e-mail.</p>
