We thought the acting and script were wonderful. Thursday night there was a very stimulating after-play discussion with the entire cast and director - if you have the opportunity it is well worth staying after the play.

Description

by Mat Smart

Directed by Steve Wilson

Featuring LiveWire Collective members Joel Ewing and Madeline Long, with Laura Bess Ewing, Krista Krauss, Max Lesser and Rob McLean.

Anxious about the state of his relationship, Vincent impulsively stands up a date with his longtime girlfriend. He packs a suitcase full of his grandparents’ love letters and hops on a plane from Chicago to Paris – the very city where his grandparents lived and fell in love, embarking on a journey to find out if the love he imagines is possible. LiveWire is proud to present the Chicago premiere of this charming and theatrical piece by Naperville native Mat Smart.

Mat Smart is a current McKnight Advancement Grant recipient and a former two-time Jerome Fellow at The Playwrights’ Center in Minneapolis. Plays include: _Samuel J. and K. _(Williamstown Theatre Festival and upcoming at Steppenwolf for Young Adults), The Hopper Collection (Magic Theatre and Huntington Theatre Company) and The Bebop Heard in Okinawa (O’Neill Playwrights’ Conference). He is a co-founder of Slant Theatre Project in New York City and serves on the Board of Directors for The New Harmony Project. Undergraduate: University of Evansville. M.F.A.: UCSD.
