Fall in love with the future. Fall in love with TomorrowLove.
As technology develops further toward virtual realities, TomorrowLove takes on love, sex and relationships of the future. How will technology play a role in our future relationships? Will we recognize love? TomorrowLove has been described as ‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind’ meets ‘Black Mirror’.
Written by Rosamund Small in 2015, TomorrowLove is comprised of seven thematically linked playlets. Rosamund states that the play
is about love and set in many different versions in the very near future, where one piece of amazing technology exists. It
"is about exploring different relationships and how this one thing activates change in the way that two people relate to each other. Sometimes it ends up bringing people closer together and sometimes it pushes them further apart."
Guest director Andrea Donaldson collaborates with Toronto designer Anna Treusch (set), Hamilton designer Christopher Stanton (sound), as well as resident designers, Sharon E. Secord (costume), and Paul J. Cegys (lighting). Together, they have created an ephemeral world of paper and light that exists outside technology and allows the viewer to see the relationships through an unfiltered lens.
The production is book-ended by two engagement events. Doors will open 30 minutes prior to the performance so the audience can immerse themselves in a thematic display meant to extend the world of the play to the world right in front of us. Following each performance, the audience can participate in a talkback with the cast about the themes and content of the play.
