Hyperreality Show: A Few Plays on the Media and Popular Culture

Stagecloud presents four hilarious, genre-bending plays on life in a culture saturated with digital media and entertainment. Critically hailed as "dizzyingly clever" and "deliciously sophisticated" (Russ Bickerstaff, Shepherd Express), this four part collection includes:

"Brad and Mr. Sorkin Write a Movie": Two screenwriters clash over the direction of Columbia's next film on tech startups

"A Group of People Have a Conversation about Science and Religion Over the Internet": A fierce debate, with dialogue lifted entirely from the comments section of a real YouTube video

"Telenoverla": A wealthy family must protect their estate from an impending pirate attack in this parody of a Mexican telenovela

"Fairytale Ending": Prince Caleb and Princess Polaria, the Disney-esque royalty of the Brightforest Kingdom, confront harsh realities about their marriage

Hyperreality Show stars Alex Johnson, Jolie LeBell, Joe Picchetti, Nate Press, Mitch Weindorf, and Elodie Senetra and is written and directed by Sean Douglass. This is a recording of the original production, which ran from August 7-16, 2015 at Milwaukee's Tenth Street Theatre. (Running time: 95 minutes)
