Computer Simulation of the Ocean
by Physical Plant Theatre

Apr. 18 - Oct. 18, 2014

A work-in-progress performance experienced through text messages.

At first, Sarah is writing to apologize. What she did was thoughtless and so selfish and she doesn't expect you to forgive her. She wishes you could see how terrible and guilty she feels for hurting you...She can't believe you're not writing her back, even once. You're not like that. There must be a problem.

She realizes it's a problem with the air. The air is blocking your messages to her. The air has started thinking for itself. She begins to believe that the air is formulating a plan. It turns out she's right.

Computer Simulation of the Ocean is a romantic, supernatural, psychological thriller told entirely using text messages you receive on your mobile phone. No set, no lights, no venue to go to. Just you and your phone.

You can subscribe at any time. We'll send a confirmation text right away and then the first message of the story will arrive on Friday April 18th. You'll get three or four text messages per week for six months. You can unsubscribe at any time. Unfortunately, this project is only compatible with US based mobile phones, and depending on your messaging plan, some charges may apply.

Also feel free to subscribe after April 18th - we'll catch you up on anything you've missed.
