Coming to grips with the plot of this play is one of the challenges that you will be facing when watching it because nobody is who you think they are. Just like in real life when browsing on the web, it can be “just an illusion”! It is easy to say that Jim, Sally, and Greg take us along the winding road of a Cornelian drama, but the discoveries that you will endeavour to make will come from the absurdity and antics spoken and acted by the protagonists delving in irony. The absurd is central to the theme of this narrative and builds the magic of the play, shell shocked with verbal and active interactivity torpedoed at the spectators.
The pedagogical aspect of this play is no mystery to anybody discovering this unique experience of an out-of-the-ordinary story leading us to laugh at our own life experiences.
No F’in(g) Murder is part of a collection called The Virtual Dreaming ConneXtion, available also in French.
