WORLD OF WIRES adapted and directed by Jay Scheib after the film Welt am Draht by Rainer Werner Fassbinder Screenplay based on the novel Simulacron-3 by Daniel F. Galouye Reeling from the reality of people living their lives inside of machines, World of Wires is Jay Scheib’s new adaptation of Welt am Draht, filmmaker Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s 1973 science-fiction meteor of virtuality. The play is an all-bets-are-off homage to the startlingly comforting possibility that you too might be ones and zeroes in someone else's immaculately programmed world. World of Wires is also inspired by the works of Oxford University Professor Nick Bostrom, including his exceptionally compelling paper, "Are You Living in a Computer Simulation?" Performances by Mikéah Ernest Jennings, Rosalie Lowe, Jon Morris, Ayesha Ngaujah, Laine Rettmer and Tanya Selvaratnam; scenic design by Sara Brown, costumes by Alba Clemente, sound design by Anouschka Trocker, lighting and video by Josh Higgason, camera by Jay Scheib and stage managed by Susan Wilson. Laine Rettmer is the Assistant Director, and Tanya Selvaratnam is the Producer. September 21 and 22, 2012 8pm / $25 ($22 for members) There will be a post-show Q&A after the September 21st performance. For more information http://www.jayscheib.com (susanbethwilson)
