A surrealist comedy that explores love after love, love in between love, and love before love. What is love after all? Is it the rush of excitement from beauty and charm? Or is it the safety and comfort of being home? Is it true that we can only love one person at a time? The show loosely follows Dante's Inferno, and what we really care about. If we care about the environment, do we donate money to a show about the environment, or do we directly donate to environment causes? Or do we chain ourselves to a tree? And what constitutes "care? Feel pain? Cause action?
Welcome to THE INFERNO :)
