What if Plato owned an iPhone? Would The Cave be a pimped-out, hi-def bro hole man cave? What if Nietsche played Xbox? Would Ubermensch be Super Mario Brother hellbent on crushing his fellow pixelated mates into submission instead?
Chris struggles mightily to suss out what gives humans humanity as he attempts to forge skin-to-skin connections with his girlfriend, June, while she slides blissfully into the abyss of virtual reality awash in a sea of Alexas, Siris, Doordashes and Instagram selfies. What is the meaning of life? Does what we do here matter, or are we simply here because we are matter?

Emerging Artists returns with their one-of-a-kind festival. Visit the theater any evening during this three-week event, and you'll find yourself transported in a number of surprising ways: by a single performer embodying a whole host of characters; by a more experimental theater piece "done differently" that challenges and delights; by a cozy two-person show exploring relationships; or perhaps by a bouncy new musical that will have you humming. Emerging Artists has always been about new works, new talents, new voices. That's never been more evident than now.
NO REFUNDS will be granted.
