UW-Superior Theatre presents I and You, a new play by Lauren Gunderson about two high school students thrown together by a Walt Whitman assignment.
The show is directed by Kathy Laakso.
I and You, explores two young people’s perceptions of the world and how they approach life. Caroline, who is waiting for a liver transplant, is understandably angry at the world and doubtful she will find peace and joy. Anthony is sensitive, curious and wistful about what the future and life may have to offer. Through a school English assignment, they’ve been brought together one afternoon to discuss a poem by Walt Whitman. As they share their interests, dreams and disappointments, they discover that as individuals, the “I and you,” there is a strong need for human connection, the “us.”
The play runs Feb. 15, 16, 22 and 23 at 7:30 p.m. and Feb. 17 and 24 at 2 p.m.
Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for seniors ages 60 and up and non-UWS students and $5 for UWS students and individuals in groups of 10 or more. Reservations may be made by calling the box office at 715-394-8380.
