I and You Poster

"I And You" by Lauren Gunderson

streaming Apr. 15-17

MUW Theatre in collaboration with the Department of Communications presents I and You by Lauren Gunderson. One afternoon, Anthony arrives unexpectedly at classmate Caroline’s door bearing a beat-up copy of Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass, an urgent assignment from their English teacher. Homebound due to illness, Caroline hasn’t been to school in months, but she is as quick and sardonic as Anthony is athletic, sensitive, and popular. As these two let down their guards and share their secrets, this seemingly mundane poetry project unlocks a much deeper mystery that has brought them together. I and You is an ode to youth, life, love, and the strange beauty of human connectedness.

April 15-16 7:30 p.m.
Streaming online and on the Cromwell Blackbox Big Screen.
