    This play, a kaleidoscopic exploration of loneliness in many form, illuminates the way that disappointment (be it the disappointment we feel about ourselves, or that which we imagine others feel about us) can amplify feelings of isolation, and celebrates the honesty, vulnerability, and effort necessary to meaningful human connection. At its best, theatre creates community within its audience and becomes a force to combat loneliness even after the performance has ended, and Ministers of Loneliness does just that.
