I and You @ Valley Center Stage (North Bend)
By Lauren Gunderson
Directed by Robin Walbeck-Forrest
Homebound due to illness, Caroline hasn’t been to school in months. One afternoon, classmate Anthony arrives unexpectedly with a beat-up copy of Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass and an urgent assignment from their English teacher. Through this seemingly mundane poetry project, the two open up to each other and reveal their secrets. I and You is an ode to youth, life, love and the strange beauty of human connectedness.
Location: Salal Grange (1060 Stilson Ave., North Bend)
Pay-what-you-choose performances on Thursday nights.
