Set in the world of seductive cyber chat rooms and instant messaging, Angela finds herself torn between a budding "real life" romance and a darker online
relationship with a family seemingly bent on its own destruction. As she struggles to come to terms with her own feelings of insecurity and loneliness, she is simultaneously pulled deeper into a bizarre cyberspace by the perplexing and emotionally elusive family of Jacob, his younger sister Rachel and their obsessive father, Isaac. Eventually, Angela's dual worlds of reality and "virtu-ality" begin to blur together, until her computer life threatens to devour her whole.

It's fun to submit "Isaac, I am" to different theatres. It's a great intro and most important, an opportunity to meet other folks in the theatrical community. It will do better in print with more productions and reviews to bolster it.
Some of my work is published with Players Press. They are in the midst of upgrading their website. I look forward to it being done.
