From the organizer:
The Jakarta Players' Longing for Love is five one-act plays celebrating our wish for human connection -- and how we sometimes find it (and lose it) in the most unexpected places.
Women in a support group share colourful stories of lost love. In chance encounters, strangers from different worlds discover they have much more in common than they thought. A veteran's return to his hometown reignites childhood passions. And friends on a train come to the end of the line -- with each other.
Come to see these five entertaining and brilliantly-written short plays. They'll make you chuckle and warm your heart with the sparks and tingles of live theater!
Directors: Heriska Suthapa & Andrew Trigg
