Description

By Bob Jude Ferrante

Directed by: Cat Parker

Whose mind is it anyway? Spooky, moving, and hilarious, this brand-new comedy directed by Cat Parker will rock your mind.

What is “real?” Do “we” all live in the same reality as “you?” In a world where reality is amorphous, how do we know what is “good?” Or “evil?” A New Theory of Vision asks you to question your reality and your definition of “human,” focused through the lens of Bob Jude Ferrante’s surreal, poetic new comedy.

Lee Krebs, once a best-selling author, is now hiding out for some reason as a professor of philosophy specializing in the obscure works of 18th century English philosopher George Berkeley (who said we know reality only through our senses, then questioned the truth of our senses).

When a bright but socially awkward young student proposes a simulation project that brings Berkeley back to life, Lee’s ghosts are brought to life with it. A New Theory of Vision asks the question – What is reality? Am I sure everyone else lives in the same reality as me? If not, are bridges possible between individual realities? And how are we to do good? Moving between the real world, into the virtual online world, and into the world of the human mind, A New Theory of Vision asks us to question the unities of our own realities and the question of what it means to be truly human.
