Could you live without technology for 30 days? That’s the question in this smart and fun play by award-winning playwright Laurie Bryant. Ten years ago, tiny North Creek, Wisconsin became “The Most Wired Town in America” thanks to a contest-winning essay from local resident Abigail Rickman. As their prize, SOLOtech (think Facebook meets Apple) outfitted the entire town with state-of-the-art wireless technology. Fast forward to now and the citizens of North Creek do absolutely everything virtually. Everything. But when Tom Morris, the founder of SOLOtech, learns that Abigail has sent back her SOLOpad, claiming life was better without it, he seeks Abigail out, concerned that there might be some truth in what she’s saying.
Charlestown High School Theater is proud to bring “Unplugged” to their stage. Unplugged will open on Thursday, November 19 and there will also be shows on Friday, November 20, and Sunday, November 22. The show allows the audience to become part of a town where technology has been completely integrated into every aspect of their life, and then that same town is asked to “unplug” and remove all forms of technology for 30 days.
The show has a cast and crew of approximately 25 6th-12th grade students from Charlestown Middle and Charlestown High Schools. The show is directed by newcomer Kyle Reagan who is a Jeffersonville High School Theater Alum. His energy and enthusiasm will be seen in the actors on stage.
