Expressions of Love in the Time of Covid
including Playback LoveGrams*
Saturday, January 30th
3 pm EST
In these times of continued social distancing when we may not be able to touch or meet or gather in person, how do we find creative ways to express and share our love and care for each other?
What ways of giving or receiving love (either individually or collectively) have touched you?
In what ways have you expressed your love as a citizen or witnessed love in social action in your community, your country or around the world?
*What is a Playback LoveGram?
A Playback LoveGram gives audience members the opportunity to share a story about and for someone they love, sometimes speaking directly to them, as we record (now courtesy of Zoom) both the story and the Playback enactment. True Story Theater will provide Tellers with an edited video clip to send to their loved one as a gift from the heart. A very unique gift to give!
For each Playback LoveGram show, we reserve 3 spaces for people who register in advance for a special ticket to share their Playback LoveGram stories. Other audience members register at the regular price and share whatever stories they like on the chosen theme for the performance.
General Admission: $5 – $25 ($15-general, $5+pay-what-you-can, $25 pay-it-forward)
Playback LoveGram Reservation: $25-$75+ (includes ticket and production of your LoveGram video)
Comments from audience members who shared stories and witnessed LoveGrams in the making:
“I wanted it to be a unique memento of our life-long history. This keepsake will be one of many tokens of my love that I gift to her.”
“Sometimes we keep our love hidden, or unsaid. It’s such a risk to show our hearts, and such a gift when we do.”
“Deeply beautiful and moving stories… I am very grateful to have witnessed them.”
