From America’s most produced and popular living playwright, Lauren Gunderson, comes the WA premiere of the award-winning I and You, an ode to youth, life, love and the strange beauty of human connectedness. Presented by THEATRE 180 and featuring two of the hottest young performers in WA – Sophia Forrest and Darius Williams, I and You burns with humanity amid a poetical call to arms for living your best life.
Caroline (Sophia Forrest) hasn’t been at school for months – sick at home, she’s trapped in her bedroom with only Facebook, Twitter and Insta for company. When classmate Anthony (Darius Williams) arrives unexpectedly, spouting Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass and brandishing an unfinished English Lit project he urgently needs her help with, she is less than impressed and rejects this intrusion into her damaged life. As they come together and reveal themselves through Whitman’s electric poetry and over waffle fries, they discover a connection far deeper than either of them could ever have imagined.
