I AND YOU is a valentine to youth, life, love, and the strange beauty of human interconnectedness. Only in high school would two completely unconnected people -- cranky, chronically ill Caroline and level-headed basketball star Anthony -- be paired to collaborate on a project to deconstruct a poem about the interconnectivity of everything. But as the two teens cram to finish their presentation on Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass, they learn not only how to work together, but just how fundamentally they complement each other.
"I AND YOU is a validation of the human experience, and of the triumph of life over death . . . Gunderson's gift is the best thing a play can offer: we might be better people after seeing it" -- DC Theatre Scene
