About the Productions

 

Love and Information  
October 1-4, 2020
Written by Caryl Churchill
Directed by Steven Pearson

This show will be rehearsed and performed online.

From the pen of the legendary playwright Caryl Churchill comes a riveting theatrical experience that’s rooted in the chaotic nature of our information-obsessed age. Comprised of 57 short scenes – some just seconds in length – Love and Information is an exhilarating, kaleidoscopic play about how we spend our lives thirsting for knowledge, yearning for love, and struggling to make sense of it all.

“Leave it to Ms. Churchill to come up with a work that so ingeniously and exhaustively mirrors our age of the splintered attention span…” – The New York Times.
 
 
 
She Kills Monsters: Virtual Realms
November 6-15, 2020
Written by Qui Nguyen
Directed by Lindsay Rae Taylor

This show will be rehearsed and performed online.

Qui Nguyen’s wildly popular comedy-adventure centers on Agnes Evans, a young woman coming to terms with the death of her geeky kid sister, Tilly. When Agnes discovers Tilly’s homemade Dungeons and Dragons module, she embarks on a quest to complete her sibling’s game, and becomes immersed in an imaginary realm that opens her eyes to a fantastical world of secrets. Specially adapted for online performance, She Kills Monsters: Virtual Realms is a raucous journey through the land of elves, wizards and faeries that, as reviewed by The New York Times, “will slash and shapeshift its way into your heart.”


 

Theatre South Carolina embraces non-traditional casting and encourages the casting of ethnic minority actors, female actors, and physically-challenged actors where possible. Individual show directors, together with the artistic director and the acting faculty, make all casting decisions. While some parts may be cast before auditions, that is always the case with guest actors.

 

 


Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
