Where does romance start? In a deserted train station? In an empty church? Where does love end? On an isolated subway platform? On a vacated pew? Strangeloop Theatre presents Strangers and Romance. Award-winning, Chicago playwrightBarbara Lhota uses two one-act plays to illustrate the distance and closeness of lovers and strangers. In a Boston subway station, Madison and Maddie role-play chance encounters to ignite their sex life. The game playing gets a reality check as they struggle with a devastating loss. In a church, a man and a woman stumble on each other. Misery draws them together in an unburdening evening. Is it easier to find romance with someone new? Strangers and Romance is a poignant look at love that ties, knots, unravels over years, over minutes.
