Love/Stories (or, But You Will Get Used to It)
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


A casting session for a play about a love affair goes awry. A talk-back with a theater audience becomes the occasion for a life-altering choice. A couple moving in together finds that greater intimacy can be a mixed blessing when even the surface of their dialogue is stripped away. Metatheatrical antics abound in Itamar Moses' ""Love/Stories"" (or, but you will get used to it), five one-act meditations on modern love and on the act of telling stories - in which a variety of inventive devices stresses the ineradicable gap between art and experience. Reminiscent of the works of both Samuel Beckett and David Foster Wallace in their verbal dexterity, humor, and generosity, the plays collected in ""Love/Stories"" constitute an important addition to the contemporary American theater by one of our most exciting young playwrights.
