About the Play
LOAN has paid in full for the use of a private universe, but when SUM inexplicably appears, a battle of nitwits ensues. While touching on topics ranging from physics to fresh green peas, and from Gregorian chant to card tricks, LOAN and SUM each vie for an upper hand while simultaneously trying to puzzle out their -- and our -- predicament. 261.626 abounds with lively, intricate word play, emphasizing LOAN's conclusion that "language is collusion."
