Julienne L. Hairston
Five ten-minute plays about science, technology, and human connection. In these plays, a mother, grandmother, and daughter find themselves in a generation gap based on technology; a pair of friends try out the Next Big Thing; a young man gets more than he bargained for when he puts an ad on Craigslist; a young actor decides to write a very "meta" solo show; and a married couple try to understand what it means when their phone keeps ringing in the middle of the night.
