A Story of Two Young Souls and One Old Copy of Leaves of Grass

Oct 01, 2019 10:39AM
Cynical and quick-witted, Caroline has an illness that has kept her out of school and isolated for months. Then one day boy-next-door Anthony shows up bearing an old copy of Leaves of Grass and an urgent request for help with an English project. Such is the beginning of I and You, a drama by San Franciscan Lauren Gunderson—one of the most produced playwrights in the country—that explores life, death, and love. Willits High School student Aria Silveira and Mendocino College student Oscar Montelongo Medina will star in the two-person play at the Willits Community Theatre in Willits. Performances run October 4–20. Thursday shows are at 7:30 p.m. and are $15; Friday and Saturday shows are also at 7:30 p.m. and are $20; Sunday shows are at 2 p.m. and are $15. Purchase tickets at The show on October 10 is a fundraiser for the William F. Harrah Senior Center; for tickets to that show only, call Pat Collins at 459-4594. For more information, go to
