Program Description
Program consists of a special presentation of The Face of Love, a one-man musical theater piece starring E.L. James. The Face of Love reflects on the various kinds of love individuals can feel - whether for people, material goods, countries, or ideas. Performance consists of short scenes (mostly) punctuated by vocal pieces, and include a construction worker's reading of Othello, the story of a homeless man, a man reflecting on the death of his aunt, a gambler talking about his love for a Spanish woman, a soldier away from home whose girlfriend breaks up with him via mail, an overzealous patriot, an immigrant in the United States to study, and an elderly man reflecting on heaven. Written by Vantile Whitfield and E.L. James with music and lyrics by Payton-James-Payton and Glaude, all of the Face of Love Company, Washington, DC. Program made possible in part by the Communications Institute of New England.
