Reviews from Past Producers

Who needs to go outside when you've got a screen to show you what outside should look like? Who needs to do chores when laundry can be folded at the push of a button? And who needs a real family, anyway? Isn't it better to talk through text messages and receive preprogrammed communications from your parents? Sure it is.

Live safe and sound in the Virtual Family, a soothing world where complete dependence on technology is the name of the game. When technology takes away all your ills, conflicts, and concerns, you become a happier human being. Right?

Virtual Family has three endings to choose from.

Customer Comments

Thanks for providing a thought provoking play which encouraged the audience to consider just how dependent they are on their own digital connections and what their position in the Virtual Family might be in the end.
