Wonderful, hard to visualize on the page
on December 1, 2012
This is a very original, densely emotional and verbal play. It relies on the conceit that thr same set of charaters operate by different names on different sides of the stage - one representing their everyday reality, the other their relationships on the internet under different names. I have not seen it, but I found it complex to visualize, and like a film it relies on visual metaphors to communicate its full meaning. Reading it made me want to see it. It explores the bizarre discrepancies in our lonely real lives and our gregarious online lives in a way that ultimately seems deeply -- and counterintuitively hopeful.
The publication would benefit from photos or drawings that help the reader follow the characters in their different incarnations.
