A story of love and betrayal set just over 100 years ago, Imperfect Love centers on the volatile relationship between leading actor Eleonora Della Rosa and her playwright lover, Gabriele Torrisi. They, along with a classically trained actor and two commedia dell'arte clowns, are artists at the crossroads of a theatrical epoch. As they work diligently to salvage their current production, the troupe members grapple with changing times and evolving tastes as the psychological realism of Henrik Ibsen and August Strindberg grows in popularity. In the end, matters of theater and matters of the heart come together in a climax both affirming and bittersweet. The play's the thing — at least, until the curtain falls.
