My show is called Last Gas by John Cariani, the writer of Almost Maine, the show is set in Northern Maine at the last gas station before the Canadian border, the last chance to use the phone or the bathroom, but also the last chance for many of the characters to find happiness in their old age.
When an old flame returns to town, he gets the opportunity rekindle something new or wallow in the past. It’s a comedy with some really deep moments. The show is set in 2013, there are four men and two women of varying ages. The set is technically a two-story set but I’m hoping to be really creative with a platform and lighting. It’s really tech-heavy as well so everyone has a chance to get involved.
The play I’m pitching is called “Nothing is the End of the World (except for the end of the world) by Bekah Brunstetter. This play is set 10-15 years into the future in a Manhattan high school. Two 30-year-old AIs are placed in 16-year-old human bodies and are taken to the high school as a part of a social experiment to see if AIs can assimilate to human behavior.
The play is a series of short scenes in which the 6 high schoolers and the 2 AIs interact and try to “acclimate” to each other. Things get complicated when we learn that one of the high schoolers has HPV, another is hiding his homosexuality, and one of the AIs is part human. Oh, and did I mention that this experiment is being turned into a reality TV show? A character called “Voice” follows the high schoolers and AIs, filming their interactions.
Overall, this play is about growth, knowing oneself, behavior and exploring what it means to be human.
