IandYou-CoterieCoterie Theatre

The written word, the meaning of life and teenage turmoil blend into mystical harmony in The Coterie's compelling production of Lauren Gunderson’s award winning drama, I AND YOU.  This show features an acting team from the Coterie's master classes and alumni, with taut direction by Nancy Marcy.  The story starts with Anthony urging Caroline to get out of bed to finish a school project on Walt Whitman.  By the end, Caroline must find her own take on Whitman’s “barbaric yawp” which the poet says should be done in the face of one’s mortality.  60m G (Adult Language) Theatre
