This summer, Take a Bite presents Stories of Love & Hate, a double-bill of superconcentrated one-act plays: A Hate Story, written by Heather Morrow, and A Love Story, by Maria Colonescu.
In A Hate Story, Venus, now a burlesque dancer, and her lovelorn son Cupid, an archery instructor, receive a visit from an old friend, St. Valentine. The three recall how the most saccharine of holidays came about—through war. And torture. And, yes, true love.
Then A Love Story – in which Isabelle and Chloe loved Jeff…after all, he was Isabelle’s brother and Chole’s fiance. Jeff was killed by a drunk driver and the two women want revenge. But is this drunk driver the problem for the two, or something between them?
Come see how sexy, violent, and absurd both love and hate can really be!
