SOMETHING IS ROTTEN / LOVE HAS DIED / ITS POETRY LIVES ON
All the world's a stage.
This is an unfortunate reality for our Players, who're about to perform their most tragic Act yet.
On the stage they’ll navigate the emotional chaos that plagues romantic obsession.
They'll contemplate repressed desires.
They'll wait for a love that died long ago.
But love's remains will find life on the page, haunting the Players until they're forced to face their greatest fears.
In LOVEMACHINE the boundaries between performance and reality are blurred as our Players are torn between a life of illusory performance and vulnerable confession.
