Like a scroll through a Facebook feed turned into live action, in Love and Information a troupe of exceptionally versatile actors portray over 100 characters in 57 vignettes by turns hilarious and heart-wrenching. Smart and tender-hearted, this whirlwind dramatic comedy explores the ways people try to connect with and understand each other in our modern age of information overload and ever-shortening attention spans.
