Foresight starting to be less fictional... ?

Back in 2006, Ruben Grijalva of the Easily Distracted Theatre, brought to life a play he wrote called Foresight.  I was fortunate to have a role in that production.

I'm the third one from the left.

 In 2010, Ruben brought the play back with new technology and new actors for a run of shows in San Francisco. (review of SF production here).

One of the features in the play was the introduction of Web Johnny - for a little sneak preview at Web Johnny, take a look - (clip is from Easily Distracted Theatre's vimeo page) -

For those of you who are unfamiliar with the play, the idea of Web Johnny is then used to prolong the life of Victor Martinez, who has died, but with the technological advances, he stays around in virtual form. 

Why am I bringing this up? Today, Ruben Grijalva posted the following quote and link on his facebook page -

"Web Johnny has arrived. I don't know whether to be thrilled or file an intellectual property suit."

I think this means Foresight should go on tour in the UK

  1. I really enjoyed this play, I guess it was so great that it has sparked a real life trend!
