Lorem Ipsum will be staging two Caryl Churchill plays from Janruary 15th-25th.  Productions of Owners and Love and Information will alternate with Owners being staged on 15th, 17th, 18th, 23rd with an additional matinee on Sunday the 25th at 2:00.  Love and Information on the 16th, 18th (matinee), 22nd, 24th, and the 25th.  

Caryl Churchill wrote Owners in 1972.  It’s a two-act, 14-scene play about obsession with power, a critique of the values that most capitalists take for granted: being aggressive, getting ahead, doing well.  As directors Nick Schroeder and Deirde Fulton told us in an interview: “Owners is this big, fat, disgusting, complicated allegory about the notion of property, and how it can very quickly corrupt some basic human relationships. It’s played out by these very vivid, larger-than-life characters who supposedly love each other, but everything is buried under the surface. And there’s a lot of meat.”
