The day after Bin Laden is found a computer engineer named Alberto reveals to a woman he meets in a bar that ever since receiving an anonymous call the night before 9/11, he's been hiding out in Boca Raton under an assumed name. The two begin an affair complicated by the presence of ALBA, the artificial intelligence Alberto stole from his company. Meanwhile back in New York, Alejandro, a playwright who is working on his first screenplay about The Singularity, is having trouble dealing with meddling producers.

Park at The Flea), Dante Jayce (Helvetica with Rising Sun/Planet Connections; Baby with the Bathwater at Medicine Show Theatre), Sarah Kaufman, Adam Patterson* (CasablancaBox at HERE; The Pill at La MaMa), Amir Royale* (Sweetee at Signature Theatre; Dueling Voices with New Perspectives Theatre Co.), and Samantha Simone* (Someone Dies the End at 59E59/Edinburgh Fringe; The Bishops Bonfire with Irish Rep).

About the Company: Cross-Eyed Bear Productions
Cross-Eyed Bear Productions is a theatre company dedicated to the idea that Theatre should be entertaining, thought provoking, and most importantly, fun. To this end, we produce original scripts and plays that are infrequently produced elsewhere. We believe that if we have fun doing a play that we enjoy, our audiences will enjoy it and have fun as well. We believe that "play" is an essential part of theatre; that children playing "Let's pretend" have more in common with the core of true theatre than most shows currently on Broadway; that emotional depth is more important than technical wizardry.
