Description

By Aditi Brennan Kapil

Directed by Sandy Shinner

A Chicago Premiere

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?
