'Futura,' a play by Jordan Harrison, at Actors Theater
Imagine that handwritten note you keep in a drawer, that ink smudge on the meat of your palm, the volumes of meaning in the curl at the end of your signature—all gone. Imagine it’s about to happen. Imagine it’s about to get worse. A dangerous lecture on typography turns deadly in a not-so-distant future where the page has been absorbed by the cloud and the author has lost all authority. Words quickly become action in this dystopian thriller from the author of Kid Simple and Maple and Vine. Will one scholar’s romance with the written word ignite the revolution or snuff it out?
