Honest Theatre completes its inaugural season with John Kolvenbach’s "Love Song." This dark romantic comedy revolves around Beane— a depressive recluse, his uptight sister Joan, and her husband Harry, whose lives all change when a beautiful stranger breaks into Beane’s apartment.
This quirky tale evokes the idea that love may be an illusion, but it’s an illusion that can generate its own reality.
“The sweet surprise of John Kolvenbach's play ‘Love Song’ is its gentle touch. Instead of hitting auds over the head with earnest metaphysical musings, Kolvenbach works up his ideas of realism and reality, habit and hope, into a quirky romantic comedy.” -Variety
This production, at the Wallis Theatre in the The Virginia Wadsworth Wirtz Center for the Performing Arts at Northwestern University, stars Honest Theatre Company Members Sharon Biermann, Rebekah Bortot, Zachary Bortot, Sean Cowan, and Ashley Manning-O’Dell. Directed by Britain Willcock.
