Fifteen-year-old Oscar spends his time immersed in online role-playing games, hoping his new virtual identity will obliterate his adopted, outcast self. LeeAnne overcompensates for Oscar’s missing father and can’t seem to figure out how to send a text message. Isaac keeps getting his phone privileges taken away, and Tish just doesn’t give a crap—unless she’s role-playing, that is. With the power to both connect and alienate, the digital world seems to be taking over. Is anything compelling enough to prompt a return to reality? This reading of Persistent World is funded in part by the Regional Arts & Culture Council. ASL interpretation will be provided.
