Exes and Ohs

We love to follow the development of new works by local playwrights, starting with workshopped readings and continuing through critiques and rewrites and . . . okay, we don’t always love it. We frequently crave a nice fully-mounted show: production values, design concepts, and a clutch of artistic egos in riotous bloom. So we’re excited about Love Disorder, the latest entry in iTheatre Collaborative’s season.

It’s a new full-length from playwright Joe Bardin, a member of Theatre Artists Studio, and it’s directed by Michael Traylor. Bardin’s been blogging about the joys of production meetings and working collaboratively on a full production of the show. He seems excited, too.

The play follows three couples who face the stress of decision-making -- whether to break up, to get married, to have a baby. Oh, and it’s a comedy. The opening night performance is Friday, November 14, at 8 p.m. Love Disorder continues through Saturday, November 29, on the Kax Stage at the Herberger Theater Center, 222 East Monroe Street. Tickets are $20 at or 602-347-1071.

Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 2 p.m. Starts: Nov. 14. Continues through Nov. 23, 2014
