Love is weird. Whom do you love? What do you love? How do you love? And why? THE WEIRD PLAY lives in the space between romance and devotion.

“THE WEIRD PLAY is a contemplation of first love, the ecstasy of love, really bad love, self love, religious love, the end of love, moving on from love. It’s different from anything I’ve ever done, putting into play every aspect of theatre I’ve been afraid of taking on.” – Playwright Jenifer Nii, author of WALLACE, THE SCARLET LETTER, SUFFRAGE, RUFF! and KINGDOM OF HEAVEN
