A WORLD PREMIERE COMEDY BY SUSAN SOON HE STANTON
MAY 26 – JUNE 26, 2016
Emily is a young woman completely connected to the grid, but unplugged from life in this real life comedy about the now.
“WHEN YOU BROKE UP WITH ME VIA TEXT MESSAGE, I WAS CROSSING THE STREET AND GOT HIT BY A CAR. NOT LIKE, TERRIBLY SO, BUT YOU KNOW, IT HAPPENED.”
Returning home after trying to make it in New York, Emily tries to re-start her life in Hawai‘i. Connected to the world through every electronic luxury, her un-plugged fantasy life bars her from a reality that might offer her a deeper sense of relationship and humanity.
Despite her daily communication with her parents, when she comes face-to-face with them, she realizes that she doesn’t really know more than the façade she’s created in her mind. After receiving one of the best educations available to an American woman, she invests her time in a wide but shallow pool of endeavor… accomplishing nothing.
Written in a unique style reflective of our current trends of social behavior, this play could very well define a generation.
