The 2006 play by John Kolvenbach revolves around Beane (senior Ross Percell of Rushville), an increasingly isolated man who meets and falls in love with Molly (sophomore Justess Hurst of Indianapolis) after she breaks into his bare apartment. The mysterious relationship has an impact even on Beane’s career-minded sister Joan (junior Elise Campagna of Goshen) and her husband, Harry (junior Nate Coder of Indianapolis). Freshman MacKinsey Taylor of Mooresville portrays the Waitress.

The final production of the Department of Theatre’s 2013-2014 season, Love Song is directed by faculty member and stage veteran James Leagre. A free preview performance is at 8 p.m. Thursday.
