about this production

i r l Writer/director Rick Robinson's new comedy is rich in the exploration of the absurdities of human relationships in a digital age: The characters of I.R.L. (In Real Life) have lost themselves in Wizard's Exile, an online game where the players meet each other by proxy, wearing the masks of their fantasy alter-egos. I.R.L. focuses on Nathan, an IT professional from South Dakota who has run out on his fiance to meet his online buddies in Los Angeles, Michelle Merlot, an actress adrift in LA, Reyes Ruiz, who has come seeking Michelle's hand in marriage, hoping that she'll love him as much as his character in Wizard's Exile, and the mysterious Gavin the Black, who has killed each of the players time and again in the game. When they finally meet offline, they begin to discover the difficulties of relationships in a real-life setting.

This production is presented as part of the Edge of the World Theater Festival, Breaking new ground October 10 - 20, 2002. For more information call (310) 281-7920 or visit www.edgeoftheworld.org.
