An Infinite Ache

When: Sundays, 2 p.m. and Thursdays-Saturdays, 7 p.m. Continues through Jan. 20 2019

Like almost every rom-com, An Infinite Ache opens with a so-called “meet cute” – except for the fact that it jettisons the “cute.” Young singles Hope and Charles meet up for what becomes a mind-numbingly dull blind date (something with which we can likely all relate). But, somehow, the two are still drawn together, and the action rushes forward to play out a lifelong fantasy of love and loss. Though at the onset it would be perfectly understandable for our two protagonists to ghost one another and move on, An Infinite Ache takes a different tack, opting instead to map out a romance not built on explosive infatuation but on a deep connection woven over the course of a full life.

Price: $10-$35
