TomorrowLove was written in 2015, by Rosamund Small, a Toronto-based playwright who has had great success as a playwright and is only in her 20’s.  Rosamund states the play is ”about love and set in many different versions in the very near future, where one piece of amazing technology exists.  It’s 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.”

A unique feature of TomorrowLove, is that it is a big play comprised of numerous thematically linked playlets (as opposed to a series of scenes as in most plays).  Additionally, the characters aren’t written with ascribed genders or race, so guest director Andrea Donaldson, will get to choose which actor to have in any given scene, and different meanings can arise from the choices she makes.  Originally staged as an immersive theatrical experience we have chosen only 7 of the 15 possible playlets and are staging them on our thrust stage.

Millennials, who already have an intense relationship with technology, will connect with these conceivable worlds.  TomorrowLove is a truly contemporary play that allows us to meditate on the possibilities and dangers technology introduces into love and relationships in the twenty-first century.
