A brief manic-pixie-dream-play about love and connection in the age of smartphones, Snapchat, and instant messaging. In a retelling of Ovid’s Metamorphoses, the aboriginal set of star-crossed lovers now find themselves on Tinder, looking for a meaningful connection. As romance unfurls across the realms of social media, linked by the truest of loves and the most infinite of broadbands, will they actually find that the screen keeping them together is the very thing keeping them apart?
'I can't wait until I can photoshop my actual face. What's that called? Surgery?'
After a rehearsed reading in the Larkum Studio (Cambridge), the play is moving to Brainchild Festival. Time and date of performance TBA.
