The Southwestern College theatre department will present “I and You” Thursday and Friday, Feb. 16 and 17, at 7:30 p.m., and Saturday, Feb. 18, at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. All performances will be in the Helen Graham Little Theatre located on the lower level of the Christy Administration building.
Written by Lauren Gunderson, “I and You” is the story of two students who connect while working together on a Walt Whitman homework project. Through their time together, the two come to learn more about each other and themselves. Southwestern’s production of “I and You” stars Victoria Lybarger as Caroline and Kuhmar Rezzaq Shannon as Anthony.
“Lauren Gunderson is a masterful new playwright,” says director Allyson Moon. “Her story of characters Anthony and Caroline will touch your heart; it will surprise you, and stay with you long after the curtain closes.”
Gunderson is an award-winning playwright, born in Atlanta. She earned her bachelor of arts in creative writing from Emory University in 2004, and her master of fine arts in dramatic writing from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts in 2009. “I and You” has been critically acclaimed and is the winner of the 2014 Harold and Mimi Steinberg/American Theatre Critics Association New Play Award, as well as being a finalist for the 2014 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize.
