A playwright is trying to write a blistering political drama of real “relevance.” Meanwhile her ‘bro’grammer boyfriend has taken on a mysterious job in an undisclosed campus just outside the city. Faced with a blank word doc and boundless Internet, our playwright begins to sift through the backlog of his online presence in what becomes a performance of her own manic surveillance. Hot Verisimilitude is metatheatre in the age of metadata.

PROJECTS 30 & UNDER
Projects 30 & Under is our emerging artist platform for new work in development. Projects can be explorations in a variety of forms and presented as performances or as staged readings. This program is for emerging artists who have received professional training but need space and time to workshop their writing and/or to work with a company of peers. In every case we connect each project to senior artists, forming lasting partnerships and supporting healthy project growth. This is a platform for individuals and collectives needing time and space to get their work on its feet.
