Love
By Kate Cortesi
Directed by Mike Donahue

When Penelope is approached about joining a group of women making harassment allegations against her former boss, she finds herself at an uncomfortable crossroads—the man accused was a former lover and remains a dear friend.

As the women’s stories unfold, Penelope questions what happened to her, what she enabled, and her very identity.

Love examines what accountability looks like when an abuser of power is one of our favorite men, and poses a radical question: Can we place love at the center of these reckonings?

“I wrote this play because there is a conversation around sex and power that I believe people want to have that we’re not having, not in public anyway. Do we want dark truth to come to light? Yes. Do we want justice for abuses? Yes. Do we want to acknowledge and correct the exploits of patriarchy? Absolutely.

AND we also want to delve into the relationships where this reckoning is complicated, murky, and colored by, among other things, love. I believe love belongs at the center of these reckonings, right next to justice and truth.” — Kate Cortesi
