    A multicultural ensemble takes on characters who dive headlong into their experiences of trying to stay personally connected in the digital age. Actors take on many characters to create a cacophony of viewpoints: an internet influencer, a gender fluid go-getter, a mother and son who desperately want to be seen, the popular students with a tendency to bully, and the misfits who strive to be understood. These unique voices create a dynamic theatrical whirlwind that is full of humor and insight. Learn More
