Want love? Or need a good laugh? Why not both with a splash of craft cocktails?

Whether you’re a sucker for a romance or just want a thoughtful comedy, Theatre Pops has everything you need to enjoy a night out.

As part of their "Summer of Love" festival running July 14-16th, two plays, “Constellations” and “Every Brilliant Thing,” will look at two things we want most in life: love and purpose.

In “Constellations,” written by Nick Payne and directed by Kathryn Hartney, a man and woman randomly meet in various universes. One is a cosmologist, specializing in string theory, and the other is a beekeeper. Faced with questions of love and loss, actors Chris Williams (TATE award-winner for best acting performance in “The Last Days of Judas Iscariot”) and Tulsa newcomer Monica Tate explore these questions through rapidly shifting scenes and points in the multiverse.

“Every Brilliant Thing” is written by Duncan MacMillan, directed by Angela McLaughlin and stars Rick Harrelson.

“Every Brilliant Thing” is written by Duncan MacMillan, directed by Angela McLaughlin and stars Rick Harrelson (who also starred in “Andrew Lippa’s Wild Party”). In the play, a man reflects on his childhood ambition to write a list of everything worth living for: starting with ice cream, Kung Fu movies and laughing so hard you shoot milk out your nose. What started as a journey to help his mother fight depression winds into a poignant and hysterical exploration of his own depression, and the struggles faced by those impacted by suicide.

The play incorporates audience members, making this immersive experience a unique show each night.

Don’t worry: I didn’t forget about the booze. Both shows will feature themed craft cocktails by IDL Ballroom. Cheese, charcuterie trays and desserts will also be available for purchase.

Both productions are at the IDL Ballroom, start at 7:30 p.m. and run 60 minutes, with one 15-minute intermission. Tickets are $20.
