Well hello there Bluebird Patch teens! I'm thrilled to share with you my thoughts on “I and You” a highly sentimental and compelling play at the Aurora Theatre. Written by Lauren Gunderson and directed by Aurora’s Director of Education Jaclyn Hofmann, I and You chronicles the unlikely relationship formed by popular jock Anthony and chronically ill Caroline, when he shows up to her house unexpectedly with waffle fries, a beat-up book and a homework assignment to explore Walt Whitman’s poem “Song of Myself.”
As a teenager, I can personally relate the current high school struggle of homework and group projects. Throughout the day, many emotions come between the two characters, both good and bad. As the story progresses we find many shocking things about both characters and let's just say the ending of the play will leave you speechless. I don't want to spoil it for ya, but the play has a twist worthy of a Nicholas Spark book. I'm telling you this play is a masterpiece. You need to bring your friends and watch it before it goes away. The actors are so incredibly talented and the beauty about Aurora Theare it that it offers the audience an intense theatrical experience like any other. You feel like you are part of the play because you are so close to the stage. This play is teen approved and teen recommended! Until my next adventure, I'm signing off. Thanks for stopping by!
