I LOVE YOU SO MUCH I COULD DIE

August 20, 2022

This event occurred as part of the 22/23 Theater Department season. This is an archived view.

Something like a concert, something like a play, told in songs and stories.

22/23 Theater Department

Written and performed by Mona Pirnot
Directed by Lucas Hnath

Onstage there's a table. On the table there's a laptop. The playwright sits at the table with her back to the audience. The playwright opens the laptop. From the laptop, we hear the voice of a text-to-speech tool named Microsoft David. Microsoft David reads the playwright's stories out loud. In-between the stories, the playwright plays songs.
 

Mona Pirnot is an NYC based playwright, songwriter and member of EST/Youngblood. Plays include Private (Mosaic Theater, Mirrorbox Theatre, 2019 Kilroy's List) and Offshore Clinical Trials (2019 EST/Sloan commission.) She was the 2014-15 Literary Fellow at Center Theatre Group and Williamstown Theatre Festival's 2019 Playwright in Residence.
