.‘Late Wedding’ Last Shows

As an author, Italo Calvino favored what he called ‘thoughtful lightness,’ his writing playing out like the waft of a particularly poetic breeze. Late Wedding, by San Francisco playwright Christopher Chen, takes Calvino as inspiration to tell a mind-bending tale of love, longing and marriage through a variety of “interconnected fables” spanning genres and styles. There’s spies, space operatics, marital anthropologists and more. Oh yeah, and it’s all told in second person. A unique thrill, the first show in the Pear Theatre’s return ends this weekend, with options for indoor, outdoor and online showings.
