Texts From The Other Room

Instead of talking to people, you just shoot a text from the bedroom, bathroom, office, basement, across the living room. Because interpersonal communication is too hard.

Texts From The Other Room plays on a phenomena that we've all experienced. With improvisers on the stage, and another... texting from the other room.

The performers on stage need to find a way to make a cohesive show out of texts from someone that has no idea what is going on.
