about this production

i r l (in real life) When the four characters in "i r l (in real life)" arrive in Los Angeles for a convention of their favorite online game, "Wizard's Exile," they are thinking of more than just swords and dragons: longtime friends online, they've decided to use this convention as an excuse to meet for the first time "in real life." What they find at the convention hall is sometimes more and sometimes less than what they'd hoped, and they all must struggle to come to grips with the differences between their idealized online personas and their more complicated real-life selves.

The original version of "i r l (in real life)" was performed only four times as part of the 2002 Los Angeles Edge of the World Festival, where Backstage West called it "a fetching fable for our times." This new version brings back the original cast, with a new script from Rick Robinson, direction by Joshua N. Hsu, and all new digital content.
