The play A Modern Encounter is a multimedia romp through the world of relationships in the internet era. Using live theater, film, music, and machinima, the play explores how we succumb to our fantasies despite conflicting reality and how this surrender to fantasy is exacerbated by technology.
The story was inspired by Noël Coward’s play Still Life in which two strangers meet in a cafe and feel a strong attraction for one other. A Modern Encounter explores how this chance meeting might unfold in a society tangled up in the world wide web.
The play ran for three weeks - eleven performances - in August of 2014 at the Andrews Hall Theater in Sonoma, California.
