When I Come To My Senses, I'm Alive!
Annex Theatre produced my second full length play as part of its 2010 season:
When I Come To My Senses, I'm Alive!If you couldn't make it, perhaps I might entice you to read the script:
Scotto Moore's new play, "When I Come to My Senses, I'm Alive!" is the best kind of science fiction, the kind where speculation about the future feels like something you could wake up to tomorrow morning. In this World Premiere production, director Kristina Sutherland has kept the ideas fresh and intriguing and the performances finely finished and compelling. The acting is brisk and, at least for the enthusiastic opening night audience, it's premise and articulation is easily embraced by a generation for whom the globalization of information, media and personal experience meld into our shared online identities... [The play] is a lot of fun, at least in part because it is so confident and thoroughly considered in its ideas and equally finished in its theatrical savvy for putting them on stage.Seattle Times review:
It's not hard to be captivated by Moore's provocative premise about a leap in information technology that makes human emotions a downloadable, vicarious experience. The story's late turn toward suspense -- with the spectral rise of freethinking, artificial intelligence on the Internet -- certainly ups the ante in unexpected, spooky ways.... Director Kristina Sutherland keeps the action brisk and crisp, and knows how to nudge the audience's imagination.The Stranger review:
One wants to see more plays like this in Seattle--smart science fiction about the amazing world we have found ourselves heading toward.Seattle Gay News review:
Fun, fascinating, thoughtful and delightful."Have you tried Googling omnipotent self-aware botnets?""
