Homebound due to illness, Caroline is a bit of a loner. So when Anthony- a popular classmate and total stranger - unexpectedly arrives to work on a school project about Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass, she is less than thrilled.
But, as the poetry project progresses, Caroline finds herself opening up in ways she never imagined possible and together, the two discover a much deeper mystery. An ode to life, love and human connection, I and You will warm your heart and leave you breathless.
Lauren Gunderson, author of last 5A Season's Bauer, won the 2014 Steinberg/ATCA New Play award for I and You.
"I and You is a sharp and funny 80-minute drama."
-The Washinton Post
Winner of the 2014 Harold and Mimi Steinberg/American Theatre Critics Association New Play Award, and a finalist for the 2014 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize
"A playwright who makes a living writing plays is an anomaly in any city, but it’s especially rare to build a viable career almost entirely outside New York. It has worked for Lauren Gunderson, whose plays have been steadily produced by theaters around the country, including in her current home base, San Francisco, since she received a masters in dramatic writing from New York University in 2009."
