Paper City Phoenix The Short List (Theater) Image Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Mondays, Thursdays-Sundays. Continues through May 8 2016

A manic woman's attempt to livestream her own suicide goes awry when a flash of lightning transforms her into a human embodiment of Siri. For good measure this satire about technology then has her using her brain-implanted Wi-Fi to track down her "ex," who's joined an analog-only cult. Oh, and there's a pair of bumbling FBI agents chasing someone printing the entire contents of the Internet. Walt McGough's dark comedy is so convoluted and filled with quirks that not even the threat of world destruction can give it any weight. Likewise, Rebecca Willingham's production for Tympanic Theatre launches into out-of-this-world silliness, then belatedly asks to be taken seriously. —Dan Jakes
