"Heart-pounding attraction, intense all-night conversations — Love Person captures the giddiness of new love affairs!"- American Theatre Magazine
"Startling and evocative!" - Twin Cities Daily Planet

Love Person is a transcendent four-part love story told in Sanskrit, American Sign Language, English and email.

Two couples are rocked to their cores when love unexpectedly transcends sexual orientation, physical attraction, and social structures. Free, a Deaf woman in a relationship with Maggie, accidentally strikes up a correspondence with Ram, a B.U. professor of Sanskrit and love-interest of Free’s sister Vic. The four find themselves inextricably bound by technology, translation, and the breakdown of language itself.

This play is meant to be enjoyed by hearing and Deaf audiences alike, and therefore each performance is self-interpreted through the use of ASL-fluent actors and text projections. Patrons needing ASL preferred seating should seat themselves in the center or right center banks, or should contact the box office directly for accommodation (617 266 0800). Audio-assistance devices will also be available for all performances except June 2nd at 8:00pm.

Approximate running time: 2 hours, with one 10 minute intermission.
