The issues discussed in the scenes are suggested by their separate titles, which gives the reader/producer an idea of what Caryl Churchill wanted each scene and indeed the play as whole to be about, though the titles given are quite ambiguous and give the reader/producer a chance to put their personal reading on the piece. For example, there is no guidance as to how many characters are in each scene, what age or even gender the characters are, or anything really. One producer in the scene ‘Message’ decided to have a three-person chorus and one actor speaking the entire text of the scene as a monologue.
The play as a whole is quite inspiring and communicates a great deal in a short time. Each of Churchill’s scenes has a primary focus in mind, allowing her to appeal to all audiences and to make sure that at least one story relates to the reader/viewer. No matter what age, race or religion, Love and Information will speak to everyone; at least one story will allow you to empathise with the characters and share their emotions.
Overall Love and Information is a great play. It’s always changing and evolving and it will speak to everyone who sees it. The play is an exciting, innovative work of modern drama that I’m sure will not disappoint!
