LOVE AND INFORMATION

MANBITES DOG THEATER, DURHAM

WEDNESDAY, JAN. 6–SATURDAY, JAN. 9

In conventional scripts, playwrights provide the names and identities of the characters, or at least the locations and times of events. In Love and Information, all Caryl Churchill provides are brief titles for a series of seemingly disconnected scenes, followed by anonymous lines of dialogue. In a five-star production last January, part of the Delta Boys' achievement was how imaginatively a quintet of self-directed actors filled in the blanks, sharply defining individual characters in specific situations and conveying transitions in more than 60 different relationships. This kinetic, non-stop show confronts us with what actor Skylar Gudasz called "the constant stimulation and constant disconnect" of a culture in which the values we assign to others and ourselves can be contingent upon—and threatened by—the next Facebook status post. Rajeev Rajendran replaces Lucius Robinson in this one-week-only encore production, joining prior cast members Gudasz, Emily Anderson, Zach Leclair and Caitlin Wells. 8:15 p.m., $5$20,
