    Synopsis:

    TomorrowLove is a fifteen play cycle about love, sex, technology and the future.

    What would it mean to be able to clone your loved one? Or talk to them after death? Or live out your wildest fantasies online? These possible technologies become real in fifteen different versions of the future, where love is tested in unexpected ways.

    TomorrowLoveTM is a cycle of fifteen plays. In the original production by Outside the March, audience members chose different pathways through the show, each seeing between three and five stories. Other productions may experiment with the form however works for their particular practice, passion and space. The pieces can also be presented as individual short plays. The act numbers are merely suggestions as to how the pieces might fit together.

    Characters:

    Each play has two characters, and the entire cycle could be performed with as few as two or as many as thirty performers, depending on the amount of double casting. It is entirely up to the company to decide how to present the work.

    The casting can be any genders playing any roles. It’s exciting to explore love without needing to explore or invent differences between genders. In the future it will all be changed anyway.

    I encourage actors to bring their own identities to the text- change the pronouns, and anything else that might stand in the way of these pieces fitting who they are.

    First Produced:

    Outside the March, 2016

    Selection Notes:

    Think Love, Actually meets Black Mirror, put it into a stage show, and that's how you get TomorrowLove. Not only does this script take a deep dive into exploring relationships between two people, but it does so with a futuristic lens, and asks how future technology as our society continues its advancement will impact and affect how we relate to one another. The playwright makes it clear that there is total freedom for production style and casting choices, which makes reading a script like this exciting and full of limitless possibilities.
