By Andrew Andrews

Delilah and Venezio are engaged to be married, but Venezio is having second thoughts.

The junta government that’s taken over the United States has outlawed death, giving a new perspective to the classic marital vow “til death do us part.”

As Venezio repeatedly tries to kill himself with no success, Delilah’s lifelong physician Dr. Gopnik bicycles onto the scene to end the pain, so Venezio can live to dread another day.

Gopnik himself is hopelessly in love with Delilah, and would perfer that Venezio be out of the picture, despite Delilah’s repeated proclamations that Gopnik has no chance of ever winning her heart.

This production of Lovesong (Imperfect) can be summarized in seven words:

Gopnik, Venezio (Francesco Andolfi) and Delilah on the surreal set of Lovesong (Imperfect).
