Long Distance Affair - meet (some more of) the actors

So, we are still in the middle of preparations for the Long Distance Affair :).  The playwrights are still writing, the actors are still rehearsing. Meet some of them now and meet them all on November 12. Buy tickets here.

Long Distance Affair explores the question – what can you get from one person when all the information you get comes through a computer screen? 21 artists from 12 countries decided to take this virtual adventure. Be one of the 27 participants who get to take this journey and have 9 actors performing solely for you from their private homes.

"Long Distance Affair is NYC-based. Sort of. It's NYC-based for the audience. The premise is that each audience member will enter the space and have access to up to nine computer terminals. At each terminal, Skype will connect the audience member to a performer in another location - actors' countries include Australia, Mexico and Turkey. The audience member will then see (and probably interact with) a ten-minute performance at each terminal. In short, each performance will have only one audience member at a time" Lisa Parry, playwright, UK
