Acclaimed Goodman Theatre Artistic Associate Regina Taylor directs her mind-bending, provocative new play about advancing technology’s impact on modern society.

The rise of e-books and digital technologies may soon force Chicago businessman Alex Ames to shut down his long-standing African American book publishing company. While his employees fret over losing their jobs, Alex finds unlikely inspiration from a mysterious teenager, whose inventive, forward-thinking ideas may provide the solution to preserving Alex's legacy.
