Performance Notes

× One afternoon, Anthony arrives unexpectedly at classmate Caroline's door bearing a beat-up copy of Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass, an urgent assignment from their English teacher. Homebound due to illness, Caroline hasn't been to school in months, but she is as quick and sardonic as Anthony is athletic, sensitive, and popular. As these two let down their guards and share their secrets, this seemingly mundane poetry project unlocks a much deeper mystery that has brought them together. I and You is an ode to youth, life, love, and the strange beauty of human connectedness.

"...sharp and funny. Gunderson taps into a buoyant spirit...the touching 'barbaric yawp' (Whitman's phrase) of these two deeply engaging kids."

Nelson Pressle, The Washington Post

"...a validation of the human experience, and of the triumph of life over death. Gunderson's gift is the best thing a play can offer: we might be better people after seeing it."

Tim Treanor, DC Theatre Scene

"I'm not sure when the last time I went to a live theater performance and left it thinking 'I need to tell everyone about this!' That's the way I feel about I and You."

Jane Sutter, Democrat & Chronicle
