Interesting throughout. good production values for small theater space. Not quite standing ovation material.

Quotes & Highlights

“Nothing in future feels thoughtless: from the Multi-touch-like motions with which Larsen manipulates her presentation to the smashed electronics, broken for fear of bugging, that fill the terrorist hideout. With the help of Mimi Lien’s origamilike scenic design and Casi Pacilio’s buzzing soundscape, Fagan achieves the solidity of place that so often evades theatrical sci-fi.”  —_Willamette Week _
“Harrison’s vision of a totalitarian global corporation controlling information is hardly a new conceit, but he uses it effectively to make us think about the way seemingly mundane changes to the way we communicate can affect intellectual freedom, privacy and meaning.”  —The Oregonian

Jordan Harrison’s last trip to PCS launched a gender-bending, Drammy Award-winning hit with Act a Lady.

This time he returns with a different axe to grind: the future of the words you are reading right now. And “futura”? Well, it’s a font; it’s a love story; but ultimately it’s one rogue professor’s quest to avenge her missing husband – and the lost art of ink on paper.
