Review from Mo in Chicago

Well written & poignant! Set design was great--especially for this space. Actors did a really nice job. 90 minutes - no intermission.

Description

by Mat Smart

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.
