World PREMIERE Production

Electric, I

By

Shayne Eastin

Opening: Fall 2024

 

Electric, I explores the responsibility of mass media in the face of new technology.  The play is centered around the plight of an artist and a scientist who, undeterred by the barriers of time, unite to outrun the media’s trajectory while hoping to carve out a path illuminated by nature and genuine human connection. In the play we meet characters based on historical figures like Thomas Edison, Mary Pickford and Nikola Tesla—while also asking where the forefathers of a never-ending stream of sensationalized content are taking us in the future.
