A Superstar Academy original production.
October 2-5 2014 at TheatreNOW
Faces lit by glowing screens dominate our world. More than ever echnology aids us and preoccupies us and for the youth of today, life without gadgets is unimaginable.
When a young girl dreams of owning a smart phone, her wishes come true, but the result is not what she expected. Quickly obsessed with her new toy, Alice winds up consumed, literally, by the device. Lost in the operating system of her smart phone, Alice must navigate her way through hazards and trouble with the help of various apps, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and more, that assist her as well as impeding her progress.
A comedic look at a serious issue, #Alice explores young peoples relationship with their technology and serves as a cautionary tale for today’s youth with regard to their phones, tablets, music players and computers.
