By Sam Shepherd & Joseph Chaiken
Produced by the Northfield Mount Hermon Theatre Deptartment — December 2012
Performed at the Lois Chilles Theatre
This brilliant collection of poetry for the stage tells the stories of how we fall in and out of love. The poems universally tell stories of romance and heartbreak in both the lucidity and fervor appropriate for the complexities of love.
To turn universality in to specificity in keeping with directing based upon location, this staged reading of Savage/Love was set on the campus where the play was produced, with the stage set up like a classroom; and the scripts were hidden inside textbooks every student who saw the show would recognize.
