Synopsis: Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to tech. Around you, a company of 14 is engaged in the very peculiar task of making a new play. You’ll have a seat next to the sound designer as he mixes cues and watch the director struggle to contain the uncontainable. Playwright, Anne Washburn, took notes during the tech rehearsals over the years. This play is a wry and absorbing look at how work forms us and deforms us at a downtown New York theater during technical rehearsals.
