    Foregrounding a seldom-discussed brain disorder, the play, in its gentle and unassuming way, takes a battering ram to any cynical notion of love being a mere habit of association. Capodicasa submits a powerful and persuasive argument that beauty transcends the eye of the beholder, and that in our visually jaded culture it is still conceivable to love each other through spirit. Funny, thoughtful, tender, sad, and rendered with a singularly poetical voice, "You Remind Me Of You" reassures that there are still uncharted territories in the theatre as well as writers creative and capable enough of navigating them.
