Feed

A Reading of a New Play
Written by Eric Coble
Based on the novel by M.T. Anderson
Directed by Pamela DiPasquale
Commissioned by Cleveland Play House

Titus is a typical American teenager in the not-distant-enough future. He attends SchoolTM, parties with his friends on weekend trips to the moon and, like everyone else, gets all he needs from the Feed - an implant streaming the internet directly into his brain. Titus has never questioned being told what to think, feel, and buy until he falls for Violet, an awkward rebel who challenges him to resist the Feed. Commissioned by CPH and penned by Cleveland playwright Eric Coble, Feed is a wild adaptation of M.T. Anderson's award-winning novel of first love and the fight for authenticity in a brave - and consumer friendly! - new world.
