TWO LOST SOULS come together in Be Here Now, a 2018 tragicomedy now playing at Aurora Theatre. It asks: “What are you willing to do for love and happiness” and “to create meaning in your life?” This question is posed specifically to a deeply cynical, underemployed woman named Bari, who spends her mind-numbing workdays shipping Tibetan-themed tchotchkes. She’s buoyed — maybe — by a couple of cheerful co-workers and a guy who makes art out of garbage. The script is by Deborah Zoe Laufer, whose End Days filled houses at Horizon Theatre in 2009, just as her Informed Consent did in 2015. Cynthia Barrett (Theatrical Outfit’s Silent Sky, TV’s “Stranger Things” and “Halt and Catch Fire”) is Bari. Aurora regular Travis Smith (Memphis, Split in Three, The Bridges of Madison County) is the artist.
