LOVE AND INFORMATION and THE TEMPEST will end the 2022-23 season in Antaeus
Antaeus Theater Company has announced upcoming productions of Caryl Churchill’s Love and Information and William Shakespeare’s The Tempest to complete the company’s 2022-23 season. Everyone from the previously announced Branden Jacobs-Jenkins is kicking off the season in September.
“We are thrilled to announce our three-piece season of fully staged, fully realized productions at the Kiki & David Gindler Performing Arts Center,” said Artistic Director Bill Brochtrup and Executive Production Director Ana Rose O’Halloran. in an attached statement. “Presenting timely and timeless stories has never been more important, and with the continued stewardship and patronage of our community, Antaeus will continue to deliver beautiful theatrical experiences that impress and inspire.”
The season begins with a modern, funny and provocative riff on a 15th century morality play, Branden Jacobs-Jenkins’ Everybody. The tragi-comedy traces “Everyone’s” quest as they search for “Someone” to accompany them on life’s journey when it seems the end of the road is near. Depicting the randomness of life and death, certain actors are assigned roles by lottery during the show, creating a unique viewing experience each night. Jennifer Chang directs the premiere in Los Angeles. (September 16 to October 17, 2022; previews begin September 11.) Tickets for this production are available now.
Emily Chase (Eight Nights) is set to direct Love and Information, a recent work by boundary-pushing playwright Caryl Churchill (Cloud Nine, Top Girls). Where is the real love? How does information interfere with or enhance our existence? Meet over a hundred unique characters engaged in dozens of scenarios where human connection couldn’t be more critical. Antaeus continues his exploration of Churchill’s pioneering canon with this fast-paced and often hilarious one-piece kaleidoscope. (March 3 through April 3, 2023; previews begin February 26.)
Finally, Nike Doukas (The Hothouse) will direct William Shakespeare’s latest fantasy romance, The Tempest. Immerse yourself in Shakespeare’s world of magical beings, magnificent storms, grandest love, and epic betrayal. Classically trained actors, iconic words – seen and heard like never before.
