Imagine that hand-written note you keep in a drawer, that ink smudge on the meat of your palm, the volumes of meaning in the curl at the end of your signature - all gone. Imagine it’s about to happen. Imagine it’s about to get worse.

A dangerous lecture on typography turns deadly in a not-so-distant future where the page has been absorbed by the Cloud and the author has lost all authority. Words quickly become action in this dystopian thriller from the author of Kid Simple and Maple and Vine.

Will one scholar’s romance with the written word ignite the revolution or snuff it out?

Help Make it Happen

Being scrappy and innovative only gets us so far. It costs money to rent performance space, build scenery, and purchase advertising. And we believe in fair compensation for our artists and partners, so we can’t pay for everything through ticket sales alone. Can you help us with one of these important items?

  • $3.50 buys one wooden 2x4
  • $30 covers printing programs for one night
  • $100 keeps our website online for a year
  • $250 buys costumes for one show
