Telepathy, social media and a dragon! Tech week for Thinking Caps begins

As regular rehearsals wrap up and technical rehearsal begin, Strangeloop Theatre is preparing to mount its most technically ambitious show to day, Thinking Caps, which features a physical cast of five, but a virtual cast of more than 20.

Join us opening weekend, May 8-10, as these actors, real and imaginary, bring to life a production that presents an examination of the perils of social media in a telepathic-based virtual reality future. Also, there be dragons.

Thinking Caps takes place about 25 years into the future when websites and the internet are dead, and telepathy and Headsites are the new reality. Everyone has a Thinking Cap and they live in a semi-virtual, semi-real world where imagination is the key to success.
The production takes audiences on a journey through the lives – real and virtual – of the Cusick family, as they grapple with the predominance of the technology that brought them together and now threatens to tear them apart.

Thinking Caps runs May 8-31, at 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays and 2 p.m. on Sundays at The Charnel House, 3421 W Fullerton Ave. in Chicago. Tickets are $18 for general admission and are on sale now at Brown Paper Tickets. Discounts are available for students and seniors.
