The Hipp received an NEA grant to produce this new work by award-winning playwright Deborah Zoe Laufer (author of Sirens and End Days) in partnership with UF’s Digital Worlds Institute. Four friends confront the moral ambiguities raised by the blurred line between reality and fantasy in this thought-provoking, humorous, and entertaining look at how we navigate our lives in an unexplored digital age.
