Leandra, Skye and Fioon are witches…good witches, but witches nevertheless. They have been hired by Thomas (Middleton) to perform in a new play (MACBETH) that he’s written in tandem with a playwright known to them as The Brad (Shakespeare). And yes, there seems to be some dyslexia at work here, so they believe him to be The Brad. Before and after each scene in which they are featured, we see the ‘weyward’ sisters in their dressing room. Not completely savvy to a theatre world, these three weird sisters try to understand how they fit into the fabric of this world…how they can contribute to the telling of this story…how they can possibly alter the outcome.

One afternoon, Anthony arrives unexpectedly at classmate Caroline’s door bearing a beat-up copy of Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass and an urgent assignment from their English teacher. Home-bound due to illness, Caroline hasn’t been to school in months, but she is as quick and sardonic as Anthony is athletic, sensitive and popular. As these two let down their guards and share their secrets, this seemingly mundane poetry project unlocks a much deeper mystery that has brought them together. I and You is an ode to youth, life, love and the strange beauty of human connection.

“So, it’s like this: you’re eleven years old, you live in a small town and the times are dark, as they say. But you have a bike, a bike you love, a bike that makes you dream about a world bigger than the one you live in. One day, you take a ride through the outer edges of your town and something goes awry. Let’s call it an accident. Let’s say it causes you to see the world anew. Or maybe, it just causes you to see the world for what it truly is.” – Caridad Svich
