EAST LANSING—The Wharton Center offers Lauren Gunderson’s I and You directed by Bert Goldstein, Friday, March 22 at 8PM and Sunday, March 24 at 1PM at the Pasant Theatre.

One afternoon, Anthony arrives unexpectedly at classmate Caroline’s door bearing a beat-up copy of Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass, with an urgent assignment from their English teacher. Homebound, Caroline hasn’t been to school in months, but she is as quick and funny as Anthony is athletic, sensitive, and popular. As these two let down their guards and share their secrets, this poetry project unlocks the deep mystery that has brought them together. This play by the brilliant Lauren Gunderson, the country’s most popular playwright today, stars MSU alumni Greg Hunter as Anthony and Tess Galbiati as Caroline, is sure to shock anyone in the best way.
