Favourite stage direction: “For most of the play Angie is the user interface of a computer system. At first we only hear her. Then we see her face like you would on FaceTime. These projections or sounds can come from anywhere onstage/in Merril’s office. They can live on her desktop monitor, or projected, or something more radical. The actor can pre-record Angie’s lines or perform them live. She does not ‘sound like a computer’. She is human. Also of note: The first ChatBot AI built in 1966 was a therapist named Eliza.” (Lauren Gunderson’s Anthropology)
