About this show

Back by audience demand is Loveswell, a one-man show that dives deep into the ebbs and flows of relationships through the eyes of a surfer. Loveswell--written and performed by John Fortson and directed by Terrie Silverman--earned critical and audience raves during its original valley run in 2005. Fortson introduces parenting into this humorous but brutally honest revival that allows the audience to peer behind closed doors as he struggles to balance the demands of marriage and fatherhood with his love for waves. Described by reviewers as "raw, hilarious and incredibly poignant," Loveswell uses the ocean as a metaphor for the ever-changing nature of relationships. Fortson shares his deep vulnerabilities with unflinching honesty and bares all as he works out--with the audience--his own shortcomings and the man he wants to become.
