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.
