It's a free country: Your life online is yours to shape, negotiate, fabricate and either limit or go hog-wild crazy with, as you see fit. Us, we'll take the limiting; about ten minutes a day on social media is plenty, if not too much. For others, there is no limit. For the characters in Mustard Seed Theatre's An Invitation Out, there's just no life offline. This comedy of manners by local playwright Shualee Cook imagines a future in which everyone is digitized 24/7. Avatars do the heavy lifting of human interaction. But one person, Wridget, bravely voyages offline in search of answers even the almighty Web can't provide.
