FREE – ALL AGES – OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

"Coffee: A Misunderstanding"

Deirdra "Squinky" Kiai presents COFFEE: A MISUNDERSTANDING, an interactive play wherein two audience volunteers are called up and asked to read from a mobile device, which dynamically displays dialogue lines and stage directions. Meanwhile, two additional audience volunteers are given a mobile device on which they can select from a menu of choices that appear at key decision points in the story. It’s a combination of multiplayer Choose Your Own Adventure and improv theatre, resulting in a play experience that’s every bit as awkward as the story it’s trying to tell. The performance will be preceded by short remarks by Squnky, and a conversation with the audience.

DEIRDRA "SQUINKY" KIAI is a writer, programmer, musician, and visual artist who creates videogame-like artifacts about gender identity, social awkwardness, and miscellaneous silliness such as Dominique Pamplemousse, and Life Flashes By. They are currently completing an MFA in Digital Arts and New Media at UC Santa Cruz.
