September 26 – October 13, 2013
Told in fragments, Chiori Miyagawa’s emotionally raw new play I Came to Look for You on Tuesday traces the journeys of twenty characters that lose someone following natural disaster or war. For Maia, reunion with her mother, who was swept away by the tsunami, is impossible. She seeks her mother’s spirit by swimming across the largest lake in the world.
A Re/Union Company Production.
“If you’re looking for a good night at the theatre, then let neither wind nor rain nor a government shutdown keep you away from I Came to Look for You on Tuesday.”
– Bess Rowen, Huffington Post
“The piece is wonderfully tidy; its stories don’t end happily, yet somehow we leave having been swept clean.”
– Helen Shaw, Time Out
“The play, under the direction of Alice Reagan, is simple and elegant”
– The New Yorker

During the final weekend of performances , all the beautiful prints by artist James Bayard that were posted outdoors throughout the summer as street art are coming inside and will be on display at the theater.
