“Anthony unexpectedly appears in his classmate’s room to seek her help in completing a project on the night before it is due. Through an emotionally tumultuous journey, Anthony and Caroline delve into the mysteries of Walt Whitman‘s “Leaves of Grass”, unaware that something deeper has brought them together.

I AND YOU won the 2014 ATCA/Steinberg New Play Award and was a Susan SmithBlackburn Prize finalist. The play, directed by Seth Gordon and starring Melissa Molano and Mateo Mpindzi-Mott, is making its regional premiere at Stages Repertory Theatre and will close May 22, 2016.”

I AND YOU is an emotional roller coaster, it tugs at your heart, and it’s a story you won’t soon forget.
