Rachel Ormont (Betsy Brown) lives in an all-too-familiar, decidedly dystopian, alternate universe where she tries to navigate a life of feverish monotony.

Raised in captivity in the carefully controlled and craftily curated clutches of an advertising agency, Rachel’s humanity is imprinted by and organized around commodity and perception. Her parasocial relationship with the product being advertised—a popstar named Mommy 6.0 (Chloe Cherry)—blossoms, blooms, mutates, eats itself, is regurgitated and reconstituted in an insane sci-fi roller coaster ride.

This hellaciously satirical exploration of performance, digital life, commodity culture, and modern sexuality is as deeply disturbing as it is grotesquely entertaining. Director Peter Vack provokes, pokes fun at, and perfectly encapsulates a nearly indefinable moment of terminally online, critically anxious American life. The singularity of this jarring yet reflective world is engineered with precision, malice, and wild abandon. This challenging and innovative new work is sure to make a splash.
