Love Person

A Boston Premiere by Aditi Brennan Kapil
Directed by M. Bevin O’Gara
Dramaturgy by Ilana M. Brownstein
May 25 – June 23, 2012
The Plaza Theatre @ The Boston Center for the Arts

Love Person is a transcendent four-part love story told in Sanskrit, American Sign Language, English and email. Two couples are rocked to their cores when love unexpectedly transcends sexual orientation, physical attraction, and social structures. Free, a Deaf woman in a relationship with Maggie, accidentally strikes up a correspondence with Ram, a B.U. professor of Sanskrit and love-interest of Free’s sister Vic. The four find themselves inextricably bound by technology, translation, and the breakdown of language itself.

Heart-pounding attraction, intense all-night conversations - Love Person captures the giddiness of new love affairs!

Startling and evocative!
