Smartphones: A Pocket-Sized Farce is a madcap comedy by award-winning playwright Emilio Williams. Inspired by avant-garde theater, this one-hour play finds a pair of very contemporary couples, all addicted to social media, cooling their heels as they await an unseen character. But this classic absurdist set-up is no match for modern technology, as the four constantly check their devices for updates in what becomes a deeper cultural commentary. The Chicago Reader calls Smartphones "a smart, well-executed show with just the right ratio of mockery to substance." See it in Washington DC at the Mead Theatre Lab at Flashpoint.
