SIMPROV by Laurence Kavan, staged reading, Blue Theatre, August 26, 8 p.m.
2012 NEW PLAYS SERIES: 1 – Evening Taped Live Staged Reading Performance 


Simprov is a serious and surreal comedy about technology, entertainment, and identity. Two couples are on contrasting journeys: Barbara and Alan, in middle age, are being pulled apart by her ever-increasing involvement in video and Internet experiences; Actor and Actress, early twenties, are suddenly fired from their TV series and thrown into a world of new technologies and plastic surgery. Their paths will cross in Simprov, a new live version of such video games as The Sims, using real and discardable people. They will meet again when they are unrecognizable even to themselves, before returning to completely altered lives.


Blue Theatre New Plays Austin TXSimprov is presented as a taped staged reading performance, open to the public. Actors will perform with the script in their hand, simultaneously playing both to a live audience and to a camera. This project is a taped performance of a new play by an esteemed published playwright and is presented as a staged reading for developmental purposes. All footage is intended for developmental purposes unless otherwise approved by the playwright. More about the playwright:
