about this production
by Jessica Lind · March 31 - April 30, 2006
Raina, a young poet, desperately wants what she thinks her sister has, what she's read about in hundreds of poems: true love. But is her idea of a love "worthy of ten thousand admirers," an idea of love learned almost entirely from poets long dead, even possible? As focused as she is on her search, will she recognize love when she sees it? And, when confronted with the choice, will she relinquish her dream of perfection in favor of something more real, and more magnificent?
The original version of String premiered in 2004 at the University of Minnesota, Duluth, under the direction of Tom Isbell. This new, revised version is the 13th world premiere production from Lucid by Proxy.
This production has closed after a successful run.
